CMS is on track for a 15% cut for all outpatient based therapy provided by an assistant! This includes SNFs and our outpatient clinic! Arbor realizes the efforts of a PTA or OTA are just as strong as those of the supervising therapists, especially during these difficult times. Below is a link for a letter template you may edit to let your voice be heard, requesting the cut be delayed a year. Although we cannot un-do what's been done, we need to act now to delay this drastic and un-timely reduction! The deadline to respond is September 13, 2021.
Remember, what CMS does in one area of post acute care can later effect other areas such as home care.
