Congress Acts on Medicare Therapy Services Issue


Congress and the President recently extended the Medicare therapy caps exceptions process through December 31, 2012.

This means that stroke survivors covered by Medicare who need more therapy than the caps allow will still have access to those services through 2012. However, new restrictions on therapy services were also added. Read more about this issue and how you can help today.
