NYPTA MEMBERSHIP CALL TO ACTION – HIGH CO-PAY LEGISLATION – WE NEED YOUR HELP NOW!
NYPTA has been hearing that physicians are now seeing how difficult it is for their patients to access physical therapy services because of the specialist copays that are applied to PT visits. Here is a letter for you to give to primary care physicians, orthopedists, or any other medical professional that refers patients to you. It is important to engage them in this fight because the more support we can generate, the better the chance we have of seeing ou r copay bill become law!
You should share this letter with as many physicians as possible and ask them to sign the letter and send it to their Assemblymember and Senator ( as well as Assemblyman Joseph Moreele, Chair of the Assembly Insurance Committee)
And remember, if the physician doesn't want to mail the letter themselves, simply have them put the letter on their letterhead and sign and give it back to you; we will gladly forward it on to the appropriate legislator.
If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact Kelly Garceau, NYPTA Assistant Director, at 1-800-459-4489 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
