Advocating for the continued use of the Geographic Practice Cost Index, monitoring Medicaid disproportionate share hospital payments that provide financial assistance to hospitals that serve a large number of low-income patients, and supporting the inclusion of physical therapy in programs that incentivize providers to practice in underserved areas are just a few of the ways that APTA attempts to protect and increase the rural physical therapy workforce and optimize care of the patients it serves. Find out more about these policies and the association's priorities in rural health care in this new APTA podcast and transcript.
