We ask that you help encourage the AAC community

Short Description: 
As leaders, we ask that you help encourage the AAC community and ask them to comment on the proposed National Coverage Decision proposal for Speech Generating Devices.

Hello,

Attached is a request. As leaders, we ask that you help encourage the AAC community and ask them to comment on the proposed National Coverage Decision proposal for Speech Generating Devices. Comments are due Friday March 29th.

Use the attached document if you like, personalize the "ask", and distribute widely.

We ask that you TAKE ACTION today.

In late 2014, CMS received over 2300 comments from the community....delineating ALL the problems with their current policy on SGDs. And the new proposed National Coverage Decision essentially "fixes most of these problems". So THANK YOU's to CMS are in order. HOWEVER, as a community, we need to continue to express a sense of urgency in implementing the new policy. People are still being harmed under the current policy.

Thanks to Lew Golinker and the MIT (Medicare Implementation Team) for preparing this document.

And, special thanks to each of you for taking the time out of your busy schedules to make a difference.

If possible, we would appreciate knowing which list servs, facebook pages, twitters, email blasts you have contacted and were able to distribute to.

Finally, stay tuned, we are posting additional information at www.patientprovidercommunication.org.

Keep in touch and again, thank you
