I have received this letter from the NBCOT’s president/CEO, Mr Paul Grace.
Medicare Part B therapy caps expired on December 31, 2009 and went back into place on January 1, 2010 eliminating the exceptions process. This has come about as a result of Congressional failure to act on health reform in a timely manner.
Your help is needed NOW to force Congress to address this important issue.
It is imperative that ACTION to repeal the cap or extend the exceptions process be taken IMMEDIATELY. Extending the exceptions process will prevent the rationing of care for clients in dire need of occupational therapy services.
Contact your Congressional representatives today and urge them to take action on the Cap because thousands of Medicare beneficiaries are currently reaching the Cap. You can access the name(s) and contact information for your Congressional representative(s) by clicking here. You can also call your Members of Congress using the Capitol Switchboard at: (202) 224-3121 and tell them Congress needs to extend the therapy cap exceptions process that expired on December 31, 2009.
So before you go and read on ephedra diet pill, make sure to do your part and contribute to this worthy cause first.
