According to Congressman Thompson, "This legislation will undo the unnecessary barriers imposed by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services in 2010 that placed limitations on what types of therapy a beneficiary could receive."   He continues, "these limitations restrict recreational therapy from being prescribed, despite it being medically necessary in many cases."


Detailed information and a Call to Action will be forthcoming from ATRA's Federal Public Policy team.  Be prepared to assist ATRA's Federal Public Policy team with support for this critical legislation.
