Advocacy Works

A new Medicare policy restricting the criteria for the mobility device doctors could prescribe has been overturned.

NMSS details how MSers and other advocates helped overturn the unfair policy. Once again physicians can prescribe wheelchairs or scooters based on functional needs instead of relying on an arbitrary test (stand, pivot, transfer) that is not necessarily appropriate.

Great work. Keep it up!
