Friday, September 12, 2014

WASHINGTON – Twelve more lawmakers have lent their support to H.R. 942 and S. 948, bills that would create a separate benefit for complex rehab. With the 11 representatives who signed on in August, there are now 159 co-sponsors in the House, NCART Executive Director Don Clayback wrote in a bulletin. There are 21 co-sponsors in the Senate. “It shows that the ongoing communication between CRT stakeholders and their members of Congress is paying off,” Clayback wrote. “The additions maintain solid bipartisan support and include members of the key congressional committees that have jurisdiction over the Medicare program.”
