Federal Advocacy Forum 2019 Recap

Posted: April 10, 2019

An energized group of physical therapists and student physical therapists represented the APTA Colorado chapter at the annual Federal Advocacy Forum, March 31 - April 2. On Tuesday, April 2 we had meetings scheduled with Senator Bennet, Senator Gardner and 4 House members - Rep Degette, Rep Neguse, Rep Perlmutter & Rep Tipton.
We had the opportunity to discuss many policy areas:
  1. APTA public policy priorities 2019-2020
  2. Additional legislation that improves access to PT - first and early, removes barriers to PT (specific to co-pays).
  3. Adding PTs to the National Health Service Corp specific to access crucial care for acute and chronic pain. S.970 was introduced the morning of our meetings which allowed us to ask for co-sponsorship.
  4. Enhancing access to necessary PT services within Community Health Centers.
Hannah Clark, SPT was selected to join our contingent to attend this year's FAF.  APTA CO members, please see her more in-depth recap and personal reflection by clicking here
