Stop the Therapy Cap!
- Dec 04 2012
The Parkinson's Disease Foundation (PDF) has received another important update from the Parkinson's Action Network (PAN) about preventing harmful Medicare therapy caps.
Congress has less than 30 days to extend the Medicare therapy caps exceptions process. Tell your Member of Congress to act today to prevent harmful restrictions on physical, occupational, and speech-language therapy from going into effect on January 1!
Medicare therapy caps disproportionately impact people with chronic diseases like Parkinson's. Twenty-five percent of Medicare beneficiaries with Parkinson's exceed the arbitrary annual cap Congress has placed on medically necessary therapy services. Congress has just days left to act to ensure that people with Parkinson's won't be denied the treatments they need to maintain their quality of life.
Time is running out - Take Action!
PAN is the voice of the Parkinson's community in Washington, DC. In fiscal year 2013, PDF is supporting PAN with a grant of $200,000.
