Statement on PT Reimbursement Proposal
A Joint Letter to MedPAC on PT Reimbursement
The Medicare Payment Advisory Commission’s proposal to Congress to reform payment for ambulatory evaluation and management services includes recommendations that would reduce the value of physical therapy services. These recommendations would negatively impact the physical therapy profession and clinical outcomes, as well as increase the cost of care for thousands of Americans every day. The American Physical Therapy Association, Private Practice Section, and Alliance for Physical Therapy Quality and Innovation have come together to provide comments on this proposal, and are committed to working with the Commission to improve the quality of life for Medicare beneficiaries.
