Reaching Key Political Influencers in the Mobility Industry

NMEDA has established a federal Political Action Committee (PAC) to further the goals of NMEDA, including the Government Relations Program which focuses on the VA, Medicare and other third party providers. The PAC educates about the important of political activism and collects individual political donations which are combined into meaningful contributions to selected Congressman and Senators who support NMEDA’s causes in Washington, DC.

Listed below are several of the projects we have been working on:

  • Establishing specific criteria based on QAP requirements for the selection of a mobility dealer to be used by the VA and other government agencies.
  • Clarifying the use of the FSS System and policies regarding who is allowed to be on it based on their own rules.
  • Establishing safety and quality relative to automotive mobility products and services over “lowest price” as a purchasing criteria by government agencies.
  • Working with the VA Prosthetics Department, via the political process, to publish a new automotive handbook.
  • Encourage investigations by congressional committees into the issues surrounding payment standards and processes.
