Good news! Congress delays complex rehab wheelchair accessory cuts

Today was the last day of the 2015 Congressional session and our last chance to get a one-year delay of implementing competitive bid rates to complex rehab accessories. We are happy to announce that Congress passed S. 2425, the “Patient Access and Medicare Protection Act” today, and the cuts have been delayed!

Thanks to everyone who reached out to their legislators through email, phone calls and visits. Without your hard work and dedication, this feat could not have been accomplished. Please also reach out to your legislators to thank them for protecting patient access and be sure to let them know we expect a permanent fix in 2016.
