  • Therapy Cap Exceptions Process to Expire in 29 Days

    Unless Congress takes action, the therapy cap exceptions process will expire December 31. Yesterday, APTA called on its grassroots network to urge Congress to pass legislation before December 31 to extend the therapy cap exceptions process and avoid the scheduled 27.4% cut in provider payments under the Medicare physician fee schedule.    

    Join your colleagues in this important advocacy effort. Take action through APTA's Legislative Action Center and sign up for APTA's grassroots network, PTeam. PTeam will be the main source of information for legislative updates and breaking news on the effort to pass legislation to extend the therapy cap exceptions process and avoid the 27.4% cut.
