Payment and Policy

APTA Maryland members benefit from expert analyses of changing payment legislation and regulations, and guidance on processing payments successfully. The APTA Maryland and our Director for Reimbursement oversees activities or policies that can enhance the position of physical therapists in the current or in future payment environments.
