Since 2015, a variety of national organizations have been working with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and Congress to stop CMS from inappropriately using Medicare Competitive Bid Program (CBP) pricing to cut payment amounts for accessories used with Complex Rehab wheelchairs. CMS published a policy clarification stating it would not use
CBP pricing for accessories used with Complex Rehab power wheelchairs, but unfortunately did not extend relief to accessories used with Complex Rehab manual wheelchairs.
Congressional action is needed! Legislation has been introduced- H.R. 3730- and we need people from across the country to reach out to their Members of Congress to ask for support and passage of the bill.
