CRT's 2017 Funding Prognosis

Funding for complex rehab technology (CRT) is already a hot topic in 2017, with multiple CRT bills introduced on Capitol Hill, and a new HHS secretary and new CMS administrator taking office.

Are you up to speed on what you need to know with a new administration in the White House and new policies on Group 3 power chairs and CRT wheelchair accessories in the headlines?

Join funding expert Jim Stephenson, Invacare Corp.’s Rehab Reimbursement and Coding Manager, for an update on where CRT stands at a critical crossroads — and what to expect going forward this year.

This educational Webinar is designed to support ATPs, seating and wheeled mobility clinicians, funding specialists, CRT executives and their administrators. After his presentation, Jim will answer your funding questions in a real-time Q&A session.

What You’ll Learn:

  • Prior authorizations for K0856 & K0861: How the new Medicare policy will impact these and other DME codes.
  • CRT wheelchair accessories: Updates on the latest delay and the possibility of a permanent solution to funding cuts.
  • CRT separate benefit category: A new bill has been introduced to establish a unique Medicare benefit for CRT.
  • National competitive bidding update: The landscape for rural Medicare providers, Round 2019 consolidation and new aspects such as Lead Item bidding.
