State Issues Impacting Complex Rehab Technology

The Role of the State in Complex Rehab Technology

Local coverage and funding plays a key role in the availability and provision of Complex Rehab Technology (CRT) products and supporting services. NCART provides a variety of assistance and tools to assist with working with State programs as they relate to Complex Rehab Technology and the people who benefit from those services. 

NCART Provides Strategic Assistance on the State Level

NCART offers strategic advice and assistance on state issues relating to the coverage and funding of complex rehab technology. When a significant issue regarding CRT is identified within a state, NCART's Committee will convene and assist suppliersand manufacturers in reviewing the problem and identifying potential avenues for resolution and related resources.  There are a number of helpful materials on our educational materials page, or you can contact us to access NCART assistance. To see where we've been working recently, check back here for updates.  

"No Cuts to CRT" Sample Tool Kit

As Governors share their state Budget proposals, NCART continues to monitor possible rate reductions for CRT suppliers. To strengthen these efforts, we have developed a “No Cuts to CRT” tool kit to provide guidance when communicating with state legislatures and health departments. The tool kit includes a position paper with key CRT talking points, infographics with state Medicaid information, a summary of the CRT delivery process, and other information supporting the need to protect CRT from rate reductions that would reduce access. To view the sample tool kit, click here. For more details or to request a tool kit for work in your state, email Mickae Lee at mlee@ncart.us.
