APTA's goal is to reform payment for outpatient physical therapy services to improve quality of care, recognize and promote the clinical judgment of the physical therapist, and provide policymakers and payers with an accurate payment system that ensures the integrity of medically necessary services.
To this end, the association is proposing a transition from the current fee-for-service, procedural-based payment system to a per-session payment system. APTA needs your feedback on the developmental draft of the Alternative Payment System to refine the system and enhance the model. You can learn more about the Alternative Payment System at www.apta.org/APS. After reading about the system, provide your feedback using this survey by June 15. The survey will only take a few minutes to complete.
