The problem is that two-thirds of people living with limb loss and limb difference never receive a prosthetic device, but there is little analysis to explain why.  The analysis that does exist is difficult to compare between providers.

The Triple A Study Act solves that problem by identifying directing the non-partisan Government Accountability Office (GAO) to study barriers to care for assistive technologies and evaluate how those affect patient outcomes by comparing results across Medicare, the VA, and private insurers. It examines specific challenges, including the affordability of devices, how often people are denied coverage, and if patients can return to work.

This legislation has bipartisan support and its analysis will help improve care for millions of people living with limb loss and limb difference.

Ask your Senators and Representative to support the Triple A Study Act!
