Help Push the Complex Rehab Bill Over the Finish Line!

2009ActionAlert_1





We’ve come a long way on an important federal bill that would help people with progressive MS and we can’t stop now!

MS activists have helped gain significant congressional support for a bill that helps people with MS access complex rehabilitation technology through Medicare—which are individually customized products including manual and power wheelchairs and seating and positioning systems. These products not only meet the medical needs of people with progressive MS—but allow them to remain independent and active members of their community.

Since MS activists first started educating Capitol Hill about the importance of this bill at the Public Policy Conference in March, more than 90 members of Congress have joined as cosponsors. Your member(s) of Congress is one of these supporters and can help push this bill over the finish line. Email your member(s) of Congress today to thank them for their support and ask them to urge committee leadership to advance this bill. Congress will only be in session for a brief time after the election, so they need to hear from you now and make passing the Ensuring Access to Quality Complex Rehabilitation Technology Act a priority!
