APTA #FightTheCut Virtual Rally
|Date:||Wednesday, Sept. 1, 2021|
|Time:||9 a.m. ET|
|Location:||APTA Social Media|
Let's raise our voices together to oppose proposed Medicare payment cuts for outpatient physical therapist services and a flawed "differential" system that drops payment for PTA services by 15%.
Join PTs, PTAs, and students across the country in this one-day virtual effort to turn up the volume on comments to the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. Staff experts and special guests will help you understand why member advocacy is so important and bring you up to speed on the fight so far. APTA is here to help you make your voice heard.
Don't Wait for the Rally, Take Action Today! It's Easy!
Send comments to CMS via APTA's Patient Action Center.
