Congress Strips Therapy Cap Repeal from Advancing Legislation

capitolTake action TODAY before it’s too late.   We must not allow this legislation to move forward without addressing the therapy cap. Action in both the House and the Senate may be imminent and we must act quickly to mobilize against last week’s actions.

Recently, legislation that would have reformed Medicare’s provider payment system and fully repealed the therapy cap advanced in the Senate. On February 4th, however, efforts to work out differences between the Senate’s reform bill and the House’s version of the legislation left therapy cap repeal on the cutting room floor. Being left behind now could mean a swift return to a hard cap on outpatient therapy services in 2014 and beyond.

As a trusted health professional and constituent your voice is critical to the debate.
