CRT Stakeholders and Friends,
Congress is back in session this week and we want to keep pushing for passage of H.R. 3730 to stop the application of Medicare Competitive Bid Rates to CRT manual wheelchair accessories. Thanks to everyone’s work we are up to 81 cosponsors (39R/42D). That’s an increase of 27 in the past month! See the latest list here.
There will be legislative opportunities for us this month and H.R. 3730 could be included in some larger bills coming up for vote. If we want to be included, Congress needs to hear from us NOW. Please continue to use the tools at www.protectmymobility.org to reach out to your Members this week.
Our message is simple: H.R. 3730 has broad bipartisan support and its passage will protect access for ALL people who use CRT wheelchairs, not just those who use CRT power wheelchairs. Ask your Representative to tell their leadership that this is “must pass” legislation and to take action this month.
Thanks for your continued outreach!
