APTA supports Medicare private contracting for PTs

Some health care professionals are allowed to "opt out" of the Medicare program and privately contract with Medicare beneficiaries. PTs aren't among them. This needs to change.

Why It Matters

Medicare private contracting allows both patients and PTs more flexibility in providing care that is truly patient-centered.

Our position

APTA supports legislation that allows Medicare beneficiaries to select the health professional of their choice through private contracting.
