RESNA is a standards developing organization accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).
The ability for medical professionals and consumers to access appropriate Complex Rehab Technology (CRT) continues to experience significant changes and challenges. To protect access for people with disabilities CRT stakeholders need to stay informed and engaged. This session will supply CRT updates on both the federal and state level and discuss needed advocacy actions. Topics will include the application of Competitive Bid pricing to CRT wheelchair accessories, the Medicare Separate Benefit Category legislation, Medicaid matters, and other important initiatives and trends. The clinical challenges faced by consumers, clinicians and suppliers will be discussed along with advocacy strategies and tools that can be implemented in daily practice.
