As our nation unites to fight the spread of COVID-19, many rehab therapy practices have reduced or eliminated in-person treatment sessions. Unfortunately, PTs, OTs, and SLPs aren’t universally authorized to provide telehealth services. Well, there’s never been a better time to change that—starting with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
If CMS adds physical therapists, occupational therapists, and speech-language pathologists to its list of authorized telehealth providers, it’ll empower therapists to continue providing crucial treatment to some of their most vulnerable patients. Plus, it’ll open the door for more payers and governing bodies to follow suit. In short, it’d be a gamechanger—for therapists, their businesses, and their patients.
To make that happen, therapists must take action—fast. That’s why we created these free advocacy letter templates for PTs, OTs, and SLPs to personalize and send to CMS. Simply enter your email below, and we’ll send you a free copy. It won’t take you more than five minutes—and it could make a world of difference for your profession.
