The ITEM Coalition is continuing to collect responses to their survey on private health insurance coverage of rehabilitative and habilitative services and devices. The coalition is collecting information on typical coverage of these services and devices by employer-sponsored health insurance plans. The Coalition is particularly interested in things like physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, etc. and devices (durable medical equipment) and things like orthotics, prosthetics, or other assistive devices.
If you — or someone you can respond for – has health insurance through an employer and have ever had a disability or chronic condition, please take a moment to respond to this quick 10 question, anonymous survey called “Insurance Coverage of Rehabilitative and Habilitative Devices. The results will help the ITEM coalition members to advocate for comprehensive coverage of these services and devices within the new insurance exchanges.
