America's health care system faces historic challenges. The physical therapy profession can take them on.

APTA's biannual statements of our public policy priorities help us deliver our message to federal legislators and policymakers on the role of physical therapy in the U.S. health care system. They provide decisionmakers with an easy-to-understand roadmap of where we think our country needs to go and serve as a starting place for deeper conversations on needed reforms.

With the start of the 118th Congress, the "APTA Public Policy Priorities, 2023-2024" is focused squarely on issues relevant to federal legislators and is distributed to all lawmakers in Capitol Hill as well as to federal agencies including CMS.

The short video below provides a quick overview of the purpose and advocacy aims of the priorities.
