For additional information about Complex Rehab Technology and the Separate Benefit Category initiative please go to www.access2crt.org.
Congressmen Joe Crowley (D-NY) and Jim Sensenbrenner (R-WI) have introduced H.R. 942, the “Ensuring Access to Quality Complex Rehabilitation Technology Act of 2013” to create a Separate Benefit Category for Complex Rehab Technology to protect and improve access to these important products and services for people with significant functional and physical limitations. CRT includes specialized manual and power wheelchairs, seating and positioning devices and other adaptive equipment.
We are asking Congress to create a separate CRT benefit category under the Medicare program and make other needed changes. This would include the elimination of Medicare’s “In the Home” restriction for CRT products. Our objective is to improve access for people with disabilities of all ages, whether covered by Medicare, Medicaid or private insurance.
