APTA Rally: Take #FightTheCut to Medicare
|Date:||7 p.m. ET|
|Location:||APTA Social Media|
Oct. 5 is the final date so submit comments to Medicare on the proposed 9% cut. APTA will launch a final push to generate 30,000 comment letters to Medicare by Oct. 1.
APTA is calling on all PTs, PTAs, and physical therapy students to contact Medicare (the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or CMS) to fight the proposed 9% cut in payment for physical therapy services that is scheduled to begin on January 1.
Join us for a kick-off rally and then participate with your colleagues and patients for a major, one-day push on October 1 to generate as many messages to Medicare as possible.
In addition to the September 30 rally, live updates will be held Oct. 1 at noon and 6 p.m. ET. Check APTA social channels during those times to see where we are in reaching our goal on submissions.
