CMS is about to impose devastating payment cuts that will reduce patient access to PTs and PTAs. But a bill now in the U.S. House of Representatives — H.R. 8702 — could help to offset those reductions.

Congress must act soon, and your voice matters!

Join your colleagues, association leaders, and staff experts in making another big impact on Capitol Hill: Join us for a #FightTheCut Virtual Rally on Dec. 3, then take a few minutes to send a message to your legislators — even if you've already contacted them — to ask specifically for passage of H.R. 8702.
