Extend Therapy Caps Exception Process - Contact Congress Today

Unless Congress passes legislation this year to stop arbitrary Medicare financial limits or "therapy caps," nursing home patients needing care above the therapy cap to will be forced to postpone or forgo care, or face paying 100 percent of the cost of additional treatment out-of-pocket when coverage expires.  Patients could reach the current caps within a matter of weeks.  

We must ensure that patients continue to receive medically necessary, Medicare Part B therapy services by extending the therapy caps exceptions process beyond December 31, 2012.  Contact Congress today and tell them to prevent thousands of Medicare beneficiaries from exceeding arbitrary limitations on outpatient physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech-language pathology services (also known as the therapy caps).
