Competitive Bidding: Call to Action

 

As you are all aware the Final Rule has been released and includes wheelchair seating as competitive bid items when ordered with power wheelchairs.  Including cushions in a competitive bid category of power wheelchairs is crazy.  This will lead to major confusion, extra administration costs with no tangible financial gain to Medicare.

 

It is time to bring this to CMS' attention and request a change NOW!  We need everyone in the industry to contact CMS directly to challenge this. Letters can written to the address below:

 

Leslie V. Norwalk

Acting Administrator, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services

Hubert H. Humphrey Building

200 Independence Avenue SW

Washington, DC 20201

 

Remind your customers to act on this and express to CMS how this will negatively impact them. 
We are looking for a victory! 
Congratulations!
