  • Effective Patient Advocacy: Reducing Copayments in New Jersey

    A new APTA podcast discusses how the New Jersey Chapter achieved a reduction in co-payment amounts for physical therapy patients. Chapter President Brian Mason, PT, DPT, and Dennis Marco, chapter payer relations specialist, explain how part of the chapter's strategic plan was for the Payer Relations Advisory Group to develop a closer relationship with the Department of Banking and Insurance (DOBI). They also share how those connections enabled the chapter to collaborate with DOBI staff to enforce a regulation that DOBI adopted in September 2010. Additionally, they explain how the rule does not apply to all insurers, and that at least 1 large insurer was already in compliance with the rule.
