ALEXANDRIA, VA, August 28, 2013 — On July 12, Connecticut Governor Dan Malloy signed into law HB 6546 (Public Act No. 13-307), which will place a limit of $30 per visit on patient copays for services provided by in-network physical therapists. The law takes effect on January 1, 2015.

"We are so pleased to see this progress in Connecticut," said APTA President Paul A. Rockar Jr, PT, DPT, MS. "This is a step in the right direction to ensure that all patients have affordable access to the care they need from their physical therapists."

The Connecticut Chapter of the American Physical Therapy Association was a supporter of the bill. CPTA is a professional membership association serving more than 1,000 active and retired physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, and students of physical therapy.

The American Physical Therapy Association represents more than 85,000 physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, and students of physical therapy nationwide.
