ADVOCACY ACTIONS

Support The ABLE Age Adjustment Act

We support an increase in the age of eligibility for ABLE account holders from the age of 26 to 46 and hope to have a legislative bill to fix this issue in the 116th Congress.

Save Our Medical Supplies

Prescribed medical supplies such as urological and ostomy products should continue to be excluded from competitive bidding program under Medicare.

Support the Civil Rights of People with Disabilities

United Spinal supports the Disability Integration Act (S. 117/H.R. 555) which specifies in Federal Statute that people with disabilities have a federally protected right to a real choice in how and where they receive community services and supports.

Your Air Travel Rights

As United Spinal’s President and CEO, Jim Weisman, has said, “Fourteen thousand barriers harming wheelchair users who just want to fly like everyone else, sends one loud and clear message, Congress has more work to do.”
