The Senate is scheduled to vote this week on its ACA Repeal and Replace legislation which was released in draft form on Thursday. The bill would undermine essential health benefit coverage, including orthotic and prosthetic coverage, in the private insurance market and under the Medicaid program.
NAAOP is taking a lead role in working with a large group of rehabilitation and disability organizations to conduct a Congressional Briefing on the “Value of Rehabilitative and Habilitative Services and Devices in America’s Health Care System” along with over fifty Senate staff visits to drive home our message.
The briefing will be live streamed and will be available for viewing on NAAOP’s website at www.naaop.org. The briefing is on Tuesday, June 27, 2017, from 12:15 to 1:30 p.m. Special guests include Sen. Tammy Duckworth, Cong. Brian Mast, and others who will tell their story of injury, recovery, and the importance of rehabilitation services and devices.
