Patient Action: Telehealth Services and Physical Therapy
 
PTs, PTAs, and students: As we continue to deal with the effects of COVID-19 on our patients, our profession, and our practice, please know that APTA and PTAG continue to work for you.
 
APTA is pushing legislation to allow for delivery and reimbursement of telehealth services. Specific to Medicare, APTA is asking CMS to allow delivery of telehealth services at this time.
 
Members can find a template letter and more information here (Click on Legislative Action Center once on the page): https://www.apta.org/takeaction/
 
Patients can take action here: https://votervoice.net/APTA/campaigns/72525/respond 
 
Encourage your patients that are reaching out to your practice or can no longer attend therapy in person to take action!
 
Sincerely,
 
Daniel Dale, PT, DPT
President
Physical Therapy Association of Georgia

What is the status of us utilizing telemedicine in GA. It is included in our Practice Act, I believe state law allows it for physicians and OTHER professional with reimbursement parity but is PT included in those professions? Going batty trying to get an answer to this. Anyone with that could confirm the status and give current documentation, would be greatly appreciated Hank Wright PT hank@dynamicspt.com 706207-4014.
