U.S. Rehab Team Wraps Up Their Week at the NCART/NRRTS Conference

Yesterday (Thursday), Greg Packer, Kayla Mahler, Ron Turzy, Dan Fedor, and Tom Powers attended over 15 congressional meetings on Capitol Hill during the 2017 National CRT Leadership and Advocacy Conference. The group educated legislators on the issues with complex rehab technology and asked them to support H.R. 1361 and S.486, Protecting Beneficiary Access to Complex Rehab Technologies, to permanently exclude complex rehab accessories from competitive bidding.

Packer said, “The meetings went very well. Due to the previous work done in D.C., we did less time educating on what complex rehab technology is and more time asking for their support for our bills. Our bills seem to have strong bipartisan support.”
