CRT Stakeholders and Friends,

Yesterday NCART, NRRTS, U.S. Rehab, and the Clinician Task Force hosted the first Complex Rehab Technology (CRT) Industry Webinar of 2022. Panelists presented key CRT industry and advocacy information including:

-Congressional Activity Impacting CRT
-What Lies Ahead in 2022
-CRT Advocacy and Policy Updates
-Telehealth Practice Recommendations
-And More

You can view the recording of yesterday's presentation below and download a copy of the handout here. Recordings from earlier webinars can be found here.

As mentioned in the presentation, House bill H.R. 6641 has been introduced by Reps. Paul Tonko (D-NY) and Markwayne Mullin (R-OK) and would provide a much-needed adjustment to Medicare reimbursement rates for certain Home Medical Equipment (HME). These adjustments are critically necessary to address the increased product costs and operational expenses that are being incurred by providers nationwide. Advocates can visit the American Association for Homecare webpage here to send an email to Congress sharing the impacts of rising costs and ask for needed support of this important legislation.

Our next CRT Industry Webinar is being held on May 5 at 4:00 PM ET. Click here to register and stay informed about matters that impact CRT access!
