Issues that directly affect physical therapists (PTs), physical therapist assistants (PTAs), and society as a whole—population health, the opioid crisis, innovative delivery models, and much more—will be front and center at the 2018 APTA State Policy and Payment Forum. Registrations are now open for this important members-only gathering, to be held September 15–16 at the Westin Crown Center in Kansas City, Missouri.

The forum is designed to increase PT and PTA involvement in and knowledge of state legislative and payment issues that have an impact on the practice of physical therapy, and to improve legislative, regulatory, and payment advocacy efforts at the state level.

In addition to presentations on current advocacy efforts in the states, the forum will include information on federal regulatory issues; a presentation on state telehealth policy; and breakout sessions on state issues in pediatrics, value driving payment and contracting, and the physical therapy licensure compact. The event also includes a workshop for legislative chairs and lobbyists, and another aimed at payment chairs.

Registration is online-only and is open through August 17—no onsite registrations will be offered. Visit the forum registration page to sign up and learn more about the event.
