NCART Publishes CRT Telehealth Position Paper
The NCART Legislative Committee has published an updated telehealth position paper requesting that Congress “make permanent” the current COVID-19 telehealth flexibilities that have brought important benefits to individuals with disabilities. You can read the position paper here.
The temporary CRT telehealth option must be made permanent so that Medicare beneficiaries with disabilities can continue to have remote access to CRT evaluations, fittings, and training when an in-person visit is not possible due to medical risks, transportation barriers, lack of local qualified clinicians, and other factors.
Congress must take legislative action to make sure that these CRT telehealth services continue to be available after the expiration of the Public Health Emergency (PHE).
Now is the time to take action to ensure Congress understands the critical need to protect access to CRT and the needed supporting services available through telehealth. Visit www.protectmymobility.org to send a message to your Members asking for their support.
