Show Your Support for Therapy Services and Therapy Professionals
- Provide for a temporary delay to a reimbursement reduction in the CY 2022 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule for services provided by physical therapist assistants and occupational therapy assistants – to protect beneficiary access to therapy services – beginning on Jan. 1, 2022;
- Exclude rural and underserved areas from the assistant reduction; and
- Align Medicare private practice supervision requirements with other outpatient supervision requirements (based on state practice acts)
Please take a moment to write to your House members urging them to cosponsor the Stabilizing Medicare Access to Rehabilitation and Therapy (SMART) Act of 2021 (H.R.5536) and ask them to add the bipartisan legislation to any legislative packages moving before the end of the year.
Please feel free to contact us to discuss any questions. Thank you, in advance, for your support!
