NCART schedules awareness week

Friday, August 1, 2014

WASHINGTON – NCART has declared the week of Aug. 18-24 National CRT Awareness Week. The group is calling on stakeholders to reach out to members of Congress during the August recess to help secure more support for bills to create a separate benefit for complex rehab. There are currently 146 co-sponsors for H.R. 942 and 19 co-sponsors for S. 948, according to an NCART bulletin. “We are gaining ground, but to continue making progress, we need CRT stakeholders to get their member’s attention and ask for their support,” Executive Director Don Clayback wrote. NCART suggests providers arrange face-to-face meetings with members of Congress in their stores or facilities. The group can assist providers in planning and structuring those meetings.
