APTA continued its support today of congressional efforts to seek reform in the outpatient therapy Medicare benefit and called on policy makers to reject several misguided recommendations released by the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPAC) in its recent report to Congress.
While APTA applauds MedPAC for its recognition that a hard therapy cap without an exceptions process would be "inconsistent with the goal of ensuring appropriate access to important services for Medicare beneficiaries," the association remains concerned that several of the report’s recommendations do little to further real reform of this vital benefit and put patient care at risk.
