Make Your Voice Heard: Proposed 8% Payment Cut

Thursday, December 12, 2019  

Take Action – The FPTA strongly supports the advocacy efforts of the APTA and encourages every member to take action using the APTA template for messaging. 


It only takes 2 minutes to contact your legislators on Capitol Hill and urge them to oppose the estimated cut to physical therapy and other professions.


Please note that some members of Congress limit the number of characters their office communications systems will receive from constituents. Florida US Senator Marco Rubio is one of them.  Therefore, when you experience this limitation, you may wish to utilize the following options:

  1. You may want to reach out directly to the Senator or Congressman’s office, you can copy and paste the suggested letter into an email.  You can also send an email directly through their website here (though it may still have the character restrictions) or to the Legislative Correspondent for the Congressman’s office.
  2. The template letter provided by APTA is editable, so feel free to cut it down as needed to get your message across.
  3. You can also call the office of the Senator or Congressman to discuss.
