APTA strongly supports the Remove Duplicative Unnecessary Clerical Exchanges Act, or the REDUCE Act (H.R. 7279). This bipartisan bill would streamline the current plan of care certification requirement under Medicare Part B to reduce administrative burden and paperwork for physical therapists and physicians. The REDUCE Act was introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives by Reps. Don Davis, D-N.C., and Lloyd Smucker, R-Pa.
