Stop the attempt to reduce payments to vendors for wheelchairs and assessories

If you know anyone who has or needs a wheelchair: they are trying to reduce payments to our vendors who provide us with wheelchairs, assessories, and home assessments when you first become disabled and need help making your whole home accessiable
Sign this easy petition to all your people in Washington. For in Oregon it's Peter DeFazio.

Read this call to action:
ALL TO ACTION:  Protect Access to Specialized Wheelchair Accessories   The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has announced they intend to apply Medicare Competitive Bid pricing to wheelchair accessories used on Complex Rehab wheelchairs effective January 1, 2016.  This will result in payment cuts of 20% to 50% and cause major decreases in the availability (or outright elimination) of individually configured wheelchair systems that people with disabilities rely on. As further explained in the Position Paper, this change is in violation of specific Congressional legislation and subsequent Medicare policy decisions that excluded Complex Rehab wheelchairs and related accessories from the Competitive Bid Program.  Congress must intervene to get CMS to rescind this change in order to prevent the disastrous results that will occur.      There is a BIPARTISAN “sign‐on” letter to CMS being circulated in the House of Representatives to resolve this problem.  Based on existing law and policy, the letter asks that CMS issue a rescission and stipulate that the current payment policy for Complex Rehab wheelchair accessories will be maintained.    The sign‐on letter allows Representatives to add their signatures to indicate their concern with the issue and their request for a resolution.  The more signatures, the more weight the letter will be given.   Our job is to get as many Representatives as possible to sign on by Noon on March 27th.    HERE’S HOW TO HELP Representatives need to hear from people in their home districts that this is a problem that needs fixing.   A website has been developed to provide information (including the Position Paper and copy of the letter) along with tools to assist you in getting your Representative to sign on to the BIPARTISAN letter to CMS.  Please go to http://cqrcengage.com/access2crt/CBpricing and take these three steps:   1. Email your House Representative‐ By providing your name and address at the website, the system will automatically identify your Representative and generate an email for you to send asking him/her to sign on to the letter to CMS. 2. Call your House Representative‐ After you've sent the email, calling the office as a follow up to ensure you get their attention is crucial in making sure your voice gets heard.  The website provides instructions, the phone number, and concise talking points to make your call effective. 3. Tweet your House Representative‐ Something as simple as sharing a message on social media can gain attention and make a lasting impression.  Share your tweet using #access2CRT and #ComplexRehab. Use these hashtags on Facebook too. Please share this Call to Action with others to get more people engaged.  We need to get this policy reversed so people with disabilities can continue to have access to the specialized equipment they rely on each day to maximize their function and independence.  Thanks for your assistance and support!     For additional information email info@access2crt.org or visit www.ac

Read the facts about how many American's benefited from the Affordable Care Act. Which was made law March 2010. 76 million benefiting from preventative care. 105 Million no longer have a life time limit on their health coverage. People with Medicare saved a total of 15 Billion on prescription drugs.
Oh there's more, Zero death panels created.  Up to 129 million people with pre-existing  conditions are no longer at risk of being denied coverage. Which is good for those of us who have chronic illness.

Watch this facinating video "Blue Sky" from the founder of the site "MS World" where she explains how she keeps her spirits up by being creative. Multiple Sclrosis is different for everyone, the disease finds it's way into your life and it's what you do with your life that matters. Staying positive, being around good non-toxic people and keeping active is important.https://vimeo.com/101676893?from=outro-local
