Your Impact through Membership

Among other policy priorities, the Association is pursuing:
  • Medicare coverage and reimbursement of telehealth services furnished by PTs,
  • Inclusion of PTs within the National Health Services Corps Loan Repayment Program,
  • Recognition of physical therapy as an allowable service in community health centers,
  • Allowance of PTs to opt-out of Medicare,
  • Reduction of administrative burdens across public and private payers, and
  • Mitigation of the impact of the Medicare payment differential on outpatient therapy services furnished by PTAs.
These legislative and regulatory opportunities have a far-reaching impact on individuals’ ability to access physical therapy services and warrant the Association’s resource allocation in the form of finances, staff time, and volunteer efforts. Join/Renew today and make an impact.

Career Starter Dues

The APTA of Maryland has joined APTA's career starter expansion project that began in 2014.  This program supports early career members as they transition from student membership into full membership by drastically discounting their membership dues for recent graduates (from 2010 and later).
