Convaid throws support behind complex rehab bills

Wednesday, December 9, 2015

TORRANCE, Calif. – Convaid Products has endorsed S. 2196, a bill introduced in October that would prevent CMS from applying competitive bid pricing to accessories for complex rehab wheelchairs. The bill is a companion to H.R. 3229, which was introduced in July. "Convaid has been advocating both bills on an ad hoc basis throughout the year, however, with only a few weeks left to make a difference, we felt it was critical to yield as much visible support to both bills that are critical to the special needs community we serve," said Convaid CEO Chris Braun. The bills have 11 and 74 co-sponsors, respectively.
