NCART urges action on accessories
WASHINGTON – The new fee schedule amounts released by CMS this week for non-bid areas include major reductions for accessories for complex rehab wheelchairs, according to NCART. Executive Director Don Clayback urges stakeholders to use the new pricing as a talking point with members of Congress to drum up support for bills in the House of Representatives and the Senate that would provide a technical correction preventing CMS from applying competitive bidding pricing to these accessories on Jan. 1. H.R. 3229 and S. 2196 have 56 and seven co-sponsors, respectively.
