Complex Rehab Technology (CRT) is critical to the quality of life and independence of people with severe disabilities or medical conditions. CRT is typically used for complex patients requiring unique and customizable equipment to help with their mobility and rehabilitation. However, Medicare currently does not have a unique coverage mechanism for the more complex needs of individuals with disabilities and chronic medical conditions that require medically necessary individually configured products and services. Legislation has been introduced in Congress that would establish a distinct Medicare benefit category for complex rehabilitation technology products (CRT), S.1013 / H.R. 1516. The Ensuring Access to Quality Complex Rehabilitation Technology Act of 2015.
