CRT Stakeholders and Friends,

As we have been sharing, June 30 marks the end of the 18-month suspension preventing Medicare from inappropriately applying Competitive Bid Program rates to CRT Manual Wheelchair Accessories. 

While NCART and other stakeholder organizations have been working hard on multiple fronts to get CMS to adopt a permanent policy change, the COVID-19 pandemic focus and delays in seating HHS and CMS leadership have created significant obstacles. The time has come for everyone in the CRT community to add their voices and request immediate action.

We have updated www.protectmymobility.org to allow advocates to send a pre-written email to their Members of Congress. The email asks Members to contact and urge CMS leadership to take action before June 30 to stop these inappropriate payment cuts and avoid the negative access consequences for people with disabilities who depend on CRT Manual Wheelchairs.

Please send your email to Congress today by clicking here and then share the links with others so they can do the same. Thanks for helping to protect access to CRT!
