Update on Stroke Therapy Caps

 

In the last few months, You’re the Cure advocates have spoken loud and clear. Together, we have sent 9,700 messages to Congress urging them to repeal harmful caps on Medicare therapy once-and-for-all.

Much has happened in the last couple weeks, so I wanted to give you an update and let you know that your voice is still needed!

Just recently, the House of Representatives passed a bill that extends the Medicare therapy caps exceptions process for the next two years. If this provision makes it to the President’s desk, Medicare beneficiaries who experience a stroke or other conditions requiring outpatient therapy could rest assured knowing that they would have access to the crucial rehabilitation needed to help in their recovery for two more years.

However, Congress can and should do better. Although temporary relief is better than none at all, we need to keep up the fight for a full repeal!

The bill now moves to the Senate. We are hoping the Senate will amend the bill to repeal the therapy caps once-and-for-all. But we need your help. In order to rally support for this amendment, Senators need to hear from you!

Will you contact your Senators and ask them to support a full repeal of Medicare therapy caps?
