WASHINGTON – Tenacious efforts by providers, consumers and manufacturers led to last week’s introduction of a bipartisan Senate bill that would create a separate benefit for complex rehab, stakeholders say.
Don Clayback e-mailed NCART members late on Friday to let them know that a steering committee working on a separate benefit for complex rehab plans to publish a new "proposal paper" on Sept. 30. It also plans to hold two teleconferences to discuss the paper on Oct. 4 at 3 p.m.
So I spoke with Simon Margolis this morning about yesterday's consensus conference on creating a separate benefit for complex rehab (if you haven't already read my story on the conference, click here).
I had already listened to Don Clayback's presentation on creating a new benefit for complex power wheelchairs earlier this month (click here for my story), but I attended his presentation at Medtrade, anyway.
