As lawmakers craft the next COVID-19 relief package, now's the time to make the case for the profession's role in telehealth services and the need for easing reimbursement cuts.

The COVID-19 relief package signed into law last week wasn't the last word on temporary changes that could help blunt the impact of the pandemic: There's another package being worked on in Congress right now, and the physical therapy community needs to make its voice heard.

APTA is making it easy. Visit a dedicated page in the APTA legislative action center to quickly contact your lawmakers and remind them to help the profession respond to the pandemic by establishing telehealth for PTs and addressing reimbursement reductions.

Your patients can do the same, by way of APTA's patient action center.

Take a few minutes now to create long-lasting change.
