CRT Education and Advocacy in Washington, DC July 12-14 CRT Stakeholders, This is a critical year for taking the CRT message to Congress. We need to build on the significant progress we have made and push for passage of legislation to prevent significant payment cuts to CRT wheelchair accessories on December 31 (H.R. 3229 and S. 2196) and to create a separate CRT benefit category (H.R. 1516 and S. 1013). With that in mind, CRT stakeholders are encouraged to sign up for the "new and combined" 2016 Assistive Technology Conference being held July 12 to July 14 at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City in Arlington, Virginia being presented by RESNA, NCART, and NRRTS. Attendees will benefit from a continuation of sessions covering business topics for the management teams of CRT providers and manufacturers plus funding and advocacy topics for all CRT stakeholders regarding the latest CRT Medicare and Medicaid trends, issues, and advocacy strategies. In addition, the CRT "business" sessions are now supplemented by great CEU-earning seating and mobility workshops designed for the practicing Rehab Technology Professional. Most importantly, July 14 will be Capitol Hill Day enabling everyone to take the CRT message directly to Congress. Providers, manufacturers, consumers, clinicians, and other advocates will spend the day making in-person visits to Members' offices. Once you sign up, we'll make the appointments for you. So come join other CRT stakeholders for unparalleled continuing education, networking, and advocacy! You can get more details and register online at
