Your Comments to CMS and Congress Needed Today!

by Andrea Miller | Aug 18, 2020

APTA has sent a call out to all members to contact CMS and Congress so they take immediate action to stop the 9% cut to Medicare payment in 2021.

APTA has provided a letter for PTs, PTs and students and patients to use as a template. These can be uploaded to the CMS site or you can enter a comment. 

To contact your local congress representative there are template letters are available for both members and non-members, including the general public on these links. Encourage your colleagues and patients to connect with Congress too!

APTA staff has also recorded a 35-minute presentation (password is 5DvW!4&7) about the proposed 2021 CMS Physician Fee Schedule Rule that includes a review of the rule (1:08); APTA’s legislative and regulatory advocacy efforts to fight the 9% cut, including press and social media (9:18); and ways that you and others can get involved, including our grassroots efforts (28:36). Please share this presentation with others who you think may be interested in learning more about the rule, current APTA efforts, and opportunities for both members and nonmembers to advocate against a pay cut that will impact the profession at a time when access to quality patient care is critical.
