The COVID-19 pandemic continues to strain the U.S. health care system, providers, patients, and small businesses. The American Physical Therapy Association is grateful for the work that Congress has done to assist health care providers, patients, students, and small businesses. As Congress continues to work on a fourth COVID relief package, we are asking legislators to take additional steps to ensure patient and provider protections, including providing a long-term policy solution for increasing access to rehabilitation services via telehealth, assisting small businesses, protecting health care providers and first responders at the front lines of the pandemic, and ensuring economic stability for the health care system. While Congress and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services have taken a number of actions to address the current pandemic, APTA is urging Congress to take immediate steps to ensure patient safety and protect health care providers, including stopping any cuts to Medicare payment. Congress will be considering additional relief packages related to COVID-19 in the days and weeks ahead. Please click below to send an email to your members of Congress urging them to consider important policy proposals for inclusion in the next COVID-19 relief package. Take action:
