Group says reimbursement proposal a setback for amputees

from Today in PT

The Amputees Coalition and the American Orthotic and Prosthetic Association have issued a warning that proposed changes to Medicare's reimbursement for lower limb prosthetic care would create "unreasonable and clinically unjustified hurdles to amputees receiving care that is now routinely provided," according to a news release. "This proposal represents a significant setback for amputees in the United States," Amputees Coalition President Susan Stout said in the release. "It would mean that hundreds of thousands of Americans who now are active parents, grandparents, employees and community volunteers would not be able to receive the most appropriate device for their needs at the most appropriate time." more
