This survey is being conducted by NCART (www.ncart.us) to gather information on the ability of Illinois Medicaid recipients to obtain certain specialized medical equipment and related repairs. The questions are in regards to anyone covered by Illinois Medicaid.

* 1. Address- This information will be used to provide updates on IL Medicaid.  It is not required to complete the survey. 

* 2. Due to recent changes in Medicaid reimbursement, have you or someone you know been turned away by a medical equipment provider when requesting new equipment such as customized wheelchairs, seating and positioning systems, specialty equipment such as standing frames, gait trainers, and bathing equipment, or service/repair to existing equipment?

* 3. If the answer to Question #2 was yes, have you since received the equipment or services that you needed?

* 4. What would happen to you or someone you know if they were not able to get medically necessary equipment or repairs to their equipment in a timely manner?

* 5. May we contact you in response to this survey?

* 6. Would you be willing to participate in advocacy activities in IL to see this issue resolved?
