Protect Access to Wheelchairs and other Complex Rehab Technologies
Dear [Decision Maker],
I am writing asking for your help in protecting access for Medicare beneficiaries with disabilities who require specialized Complex Rehab wheelchairs.The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has announced that it will apply Medicare competitive bid program pricing to Complex Rehab wheelchair accessories effective January 1, 2016. This is inappropriate and violates the intent of past Congressional legislation (MIPPA 2008) which exempted complex rehab equipment from competitive bidding and will create significant access problems.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
