AAHomecare's CRMC plays bigger role


In an earlier post to this blog, I wrote about how the Power Mobility Coalition (PMC) was closing its doors due to "industry consolidation." At the time, one industry watcher told me that with a decreasing number of groups representing wheelchair providers and manufacturers, watch for AAHomecare's Complex Rehab and Mobility Council (CRMC) to gain power and play a bigger role.

I think AAHomecare and the CRMC took their first step toward doing that last month, when they launched a new "micro" Web site to better inform policymakers, the media and consumers about complex rehab and mobility products and services. The site hits all the hot-button issues: documentation, efforts to create a separate benefit for complex rehab and the first-month purchase option.

Check it out.
