Make Your Voices Heard! Sign Petition to Stop Medicare Cuts!
Despite past legislation and recent congressional action, Medicare is diminishing reimbursement rates for complex rehab wheelchair accessories and seating systems in January 2016. This will have a devastating impact on severely disabled people across the country.
People with significant disabilities such as ALS, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy and spinal cord injuries rely on these items to meet their medical and independence needs.
No clinical or medical evidence has been provided as to why these changes are necessary. If this policy is not rescinded, major decreases in availability (or outright elimination) of individually configured complex rehab wheelchair systems will occur.
To protect access for people with severe disabilities, this policy must be rescinded.Pre-Register for Abilities Expo Today...It's Free!
