Include Recreational Therapy in the Essential Health Benefits Package
As required by the Affordable Care Act, states are in the process of developing their own Essential Health Benefits Package (EHBP). The EHBP will list a minimum set of core benefits that insurance companies must provide (the “essentials”). Recreational Therapy (although supported to be included in the EHBP by over 50 national organizations) is not currently listed in Idaho's EHBP. We need your support to have this changed!
Recreational therapy is a vital healthcare service that helps individuals with illnesses and disabilities live healthy, fulfilling, meaningful lives through participation in play, recreation, leisure, and community activities.
