Default Help Us Make Access to Speech Generating Devices Permanent

Help Us Make Access to Speech Generating Devices Permanent
On May 16, 2017, Representatives Cathy McMorris Rodgers and John
Larson, and Senators Bill Cassidy and Amy Klobuchar introduced the
Steve Gleason Enduring Voices Act, which builds upon the successes of
the Steve Gleason Act of 2015. The Steve Gleason Enduring Voices Act
permanently fixes the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS)
policy that previously limited access to speech generation devices for
people who need them to communicate. Help us pass the Steve Gleason
Enduring Voices Act!
- The Act makes permanent the valuable changes made by the Steve
Gleason Act of 2015.
- It allows Medicare payment for communication devices.
- It maintains the payment category for these personalized devices and
lets people keep them for as long as they need them, regardless of care
setting.
- It also provides coverage for the accessories needed to allow the
devices to work effectively.
Contact your Legislators today to urge them to co-sponsor and pass this
important legislation. Thank you for supporting the right to communicate.
Sincerely, Judith Stein, Esq.
