New Public Hearing Date on Wheelchair Repair

Date/Time: Tuesday, February 28, 2023 at 11:00 A.M. in Room 2E of the LOB and via Zoom

The hearing is on HB 6702 (2023HB-06702-R00-HB.DOCX ( , “right to repair”. This is about the problem of lack of access to timely repair of customized wheelchairs in CT (regardless of payor and regardless of whether under warranty). We need people to tell their stories of problems with getting wheelchairs from one of the two suppliers in the state, severely comprising the independence of our folks and in some cases creating serious dangers to users of this equipment.
