CRT Stakeholders and Friends,
We need your Representative to join in the introduction of new legislation to stop the Medicare cuts to CRT manual wheelchair accessories.
As we reported earlier this month, Representatives Lee Zeldin (R-NY) and John Larson (D-CT) will be introducing NEW legislation in September to stop CMS’ application of Medicare Competitive Bid pricing to accessories used with CRT manual wheelchairs.
Representatives Zeldin and Larson are seeking additional House members to join them in the September introduction. You can see the list of members who have already agreed to be an original cosponsor here.
If your Representative is not on the list, please reach out and ask him/her to sign on by contacting either office. Use the Issue Paper available here to make your request. The new legislation to be introduced can be found here.
Thanks for reaching out this week.
P.S. If you know of any other stakeholders that would like to receive updates like these, have them join our mailing list here!
