November 12, 2018 With elections over, we need to push to get Congress to pass H.R. 3730 before year-end. To help make that happen, we have organized a National CRT Congressional Call-In Day for this Wednesday, November 14. We are asking individuals and organizations to get the word out and participate. We need to generate thousands of calls to Congress to get them to pass H.R. 3730 (or take other Congressional action) before they adjourn to ensure that people with significant disabilities can get the critical complex rehab manual wheelchair components (pressure relieving cushions, positioning systems, and other specialized items) they need. Passage of H.R. 3730 will stop CMS from inappropriately using Competitive Bidding information to cut Medicare payment rates for these vital products. We've made the call process as easy as possible by setting up a dedicated event page at Advocates can read the talking points and be connected directly to their Representative's office by entering their information and following the instructions provided. More details are provided in the event flyer that you can download and share. Together we can make positive changes that protect access to this important equipment for people with disabilities. Thanks very much for your participation in this year-end push!
