  • Fight the Cut!

    • Monday, August 10, 2020

    On Wednesday, Congressman Bobby Rush (D-IL) graciously offered to lead a House sign-on letter to Speaker Pelosi and Leader McCarthy to request that a 2-year delay on the fee schedule cuts be included in the next legislative package. APTA staff reached out to every House office asking, encouraging them to sign onto Rush the letter. Grassroots efforts started at the same time, with APTA alerts to our Federal Affairs Liaisons (FAL)and Key Contacts (KC) with summaries and a copy of the letter to contact their House member. Within 48 hours, over 30 House members had committed to the Rush letter, and that number is expected to grow over the next 24 hours. We will update you next week on who signed the letter and you are encouraged to send a thank you note if your Representative signed on.  Every FAL and Key Contact that advocates to their members of Congress enhances and magnifies our lobbying efforts and creates a strong, unified front. If you want to take two minutes to send a letter to Congress on the proposed 9% cut, or encourage your patients, colleagues, friends, family, etc.   Without you, our efforts are only half of the picture! So let's #FightTheCut! For a shareable letter, press "read more".

 Loretta West, PT, DMT
We want to spotlight one of our aquatic members Loretta M. West, PT, DMT, FAAOMPT. She is an owner of an outpatient private practice clinic with 19 years experience in Ortho and newly adjointed to aquatics in Plano, Texas. She enjoys spending time with her wonderful husband, has a love for traveling nationally and internationally, and exercise/train for competitive bodybuilding shows. Her interest in aquatics began with the realization of her community needs for long-term management of chronic pain, and bariatric patients in which the aquatic environment suits this clientele very well. Loretta became an APTA aquatic member to reap the benefits of savings on courses/conferences. In addition, to gain a great deal of information on best practices in aquatic therapy.
