The National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association (NMEDA) is seeking a Call for Action to improve Mobility Standards for the Veterans Administration (VA). The proposed legislation, H.R. 3471, The Veterans Mobility and Safety Act, will help ensure that veterans receive high quality, trustworthy service they can trust for their mobility needs.
“We at M.C. Mobility Systems fully support the efforts to implement a “Quality Assured Program” (QAP) for our nation’s veterans,” Mark DiRosa, M.C. Mobility Systems Vice President said.
To help, please contact your Congressman and ask them to co-sponsor H.R. 3471, The Vertans Mobility and Safety Act.

Call for Action: VA Mobility Standards
For the past several years NMEDA has been working hard to get the Veterans Administration to establish criteria for the selection of mobility dealers that work with the Prosthetic Department’s Automotive Adaptive Equipment Program. Last week, legislation was introduced requiring the VA to create minimum safety standards for selecting dealers.
Currently, there are zero requirements, which means anyone can apply and perform this work and be paid by the VA. Our veterans deserve the very best and this legislation will help ensure they receive high quality service that they can trust. By introducing this bill, non-licensed and non-trained dealers will be forced to meet whatever safety requirements the VA will impose. Therefore, all QAP dealers will be in a better position to be selected to perform VA work, because they will have most likely already met such standards.
We need your help!
