Please sign our petition to open the physical therapy panel and improve access to physical therapy services for managed Medicare and Medicaid members of Healthfirst, Metroplus, and other big health insurance companies in the City of New York and other cities in the country.

I just attended the recent round table discussion about racial inequities and very limited access to health care that is happening not only in your community but to all communities in the country. 

We need your support and sign this petition regarding the urgent healthcare concern. Many of the senior centers are closed for the past six months due to COVID-19 concerns. Our profession is here to help bring our seniors back to their community.

The Center for Medicare Services (CMS) network adequacy criteria includes provider and facility specialty types that must be available consistent with CMS number, time, and distance standards.

Physical Therapy providers are here to help during this difficult time.
