California moves to protect complex rehab

Don ClaybackEAST AMHERST, N.Y. – The California State Legislature on July 15 passed Assembly Bill 133, which includes language to improve and protect access to complex rehab technology for people with disabilities, according to NCART. 

The bill will permanently exempt CRT from a long-standing Medi-Cal provider cut of 10% and will strengthen policies regarding the evaluation and delivery of complex rehab. 

“We are extremely thankful to the California Legislature for passing this important CRT provision,” said Don Clayback, executive director of NCART. “Their action will help children and adults with disabilities receive the individually configured CRT and supporting services they depend on.” 

California is the eighth state to pass complex rehab-focused legislation, according to NCART. 

Among the supporters of the bill, which now goes to Gov. Gavin Newsom for signing, were Sen. Bill Dodd, the California Association of Medical Product Suppliers, California Children’s Hospital Association, Children’s Specialty Care Coalition, Disability Rights California, Advanced Medical Technology Association, Spinal Care Network, National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Care to You Health and AdvaMed.
