CSM 2021 is Now Virtual!

Academy members, please make sure and fully read APTA’s plan for CSM 2021. While we are sad that we will not all be physically together this February, please know we will still have an amazing educational program ready for you. Our Director of Programming along with the other APHPT BoD members will be working hard the next few weeks to adjust our CSM plan and will share this with you as soon as it is finalized. COVID 19 has taught us to be flexible and adjust as needed so that is what we will do.

Contact Congress Today and Raise Your Voice Against the Proposed 9% Medicare Cuts

Our profession is facing Medicare payment cuts, and we need you and your patients and clients to take action to ensure Congress steps in. Over the past year, APTA and our members have sent thousands of letters to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services raising concerns about these cuts and providing recommendations to address the problem. CMS has not responded. We’re now calling on Congress to prevent these pending 9% cuts, which will reduce patient access and create instability in the health care system. We should be encouraging access to PTs and PTAs, who can prevent falls, opioid use, and costly procedures. Instead, CMS is creating barriers.

These cuts never made sense. During a pandemic, they’re even more devastating. Please join our members in fighting these cuts. Congress must act soon, and your voice matters!
