Great news for the DME/CRT Industry! Today, President Trump signed the spending bill that will fund the government through fiscal year 2020, avoiding a budget showdown. Included in the bill is the complex rehab technology legislation that will exclude manual complex rehabilitative technology (CRT) wheelchairs from the Competitive Bidding Program and will stop Medicare from applying competitive bidding rates to manual CRT wheelchair accessories for 18 months.

The VGM Government Relations team and many industry leaders plan to reach out to CMS after the new year to ensure these changes take effect.

This seals the deal! Thank you to everyone who reached out to their legislators on behalf of DME and CRT in 2019.
