All wheelchair users know that wheelchair repair is essential to mobility, independence, and the ability to contribute to, and participate in society. However, some Medicare policies may restrict access to wheelchair repair services.
It is critical that wheelchair users on Medicare have access to a supplier with trained and experienced service technicians and the infrastructure and inventory to be able to repair the equipment you rely on. How is this working? How is it not working? Take the Medicare Beneficiary Wheelchair Repair Survey to share your experiences with United Spinal Association, and please share the link so others may as well.
In an effort to get needed changes made, United Spinal has been meeting with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services as part of a national work group including the ITEM Coalition, National Coalition of Assistive Rehab Technology, American Association for Homecare, and others.
