Default Take Action Now to Prevent Cuts to Wheelchair Technology!

At the May ICS Member Civics League Meeting Jean Minkel, ICS Senior VP
for Rehab, explained how complex rehab items that ICS members
depend upon are at risk for defunding NEXT MONTH.
Civics League member Stephanie Wallace talked about visiting Capitol Hill
in April to talk with members of Congress about protecting this technology.
If Congress doesnít act by June 30, complex rehab technology will be
defunded by the federal government. This includes items such as
the mechanisms that raise and lower a memberís wheelchair, or the custom
cushions that protect again pressure sores, custom headrests, footrests,
driving apparatus and other items that are essential to your freedom and
health. Learn what you can do to protect the technology you rely on here:
