APTA is featured
in an article in Roll Call
about looming Medicare cuts, including the expiration of the Medicare therapy
cap exceptions process. With negotiations on the fiscal cliff taking center
stage, "It's our responsibility
to make sure that some of these long-standing beneficiary-focused,
rehabilitation-focused things aren't lost in all that static," says Justin Moore, PT, DPT, APTA vice
president public policy, practice, and professional affairs.
"We're doing a lot to try to put the
patient face on the therapy cap issue specifically."
On Monday, APTA and the Therapy Cap Coalition participated in
an advocacy drive
that brought together almost 50 associations, organizations, and patient groups
to urge Congress to "Stop the Cap!"
Roll Call posted the
article online Tuesday evening; it is running in today's print issue of the
paper. Roll Call is widely by members of Congress and their staff.
