    Roll Call Features APTA in Article on Potential Medicare Payment Cuts

    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.
