 On January 1, 2021, the proposed 9% cut to physical therapy services under Medicare will go into effect. This cut in the reimbursement payments for physical therapy services will be devastating to PT clinics all over the country. This cut won't be limited to Medicare. Care for military veterans will suffer, as PTs who provide community care will be forced into the same unsustainable reimbursement rates. The same is true for PTs in TRICARE. The cuts will make it impossible for many PTs to continue to provide care, creating physical therapy deserts in communities across the country. 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 do not make sense. During a pandemic, they’re even more devastating. The planned cuts from CMS are a dangerous and shortsighted move that will harm patients and shutter clinic doors. Please help by signing the petition to show Congress that they need to pass legislation that will prevent the 9% cut. With the current instability in the health care system, now is not the time to reduce payment to providers under the Medicare program.
