Recognizing that patient co-pays for physical therapy services under certain health insurance plans exceed the insurer's payment to the provider, APTA will help chapters to pursue policy and legislative options to reduce these excessive co-pays. During its discussion of the charge Reducing the Burden of Current Copayment Systems, the House of Delegates acknowledged recent efforts by the Kentucky, Colorado, and New York chapters, and assessed the probability of several options that chapters could pursue, such as designating physical therapists as primary care providers.[RC 16-11]
