CRT Advocates and Friends,

CMS is expected to release a decision memo on coverage for power seat elevation systems by this Wednesday, February 15. Once the proposed decision is released, there will be another 30-day public comment period for stakeholders to provide feedback. After those 30 days, CMS will review any new evidence and make needed revisions before releasing a final decision.

As we did in August 2022, NCART will be encouraging all CRT advocates to submit comments regarding the proposed decision. If the decision is positive, it will be critical to thank CMS and encourage them to finalize coverage as quickly as possible. If CMS proposes to limit or deny coverage for these systems, it will be even more essential that we present a united front urging them to reconsider.

We will provide an update and additional details about how to submit comments as soon as the decision is released this week. Thank you in advance for your continued support and advocacy action to secure Medicare coverage for this important technology!
