Stop the Therapy Caps

Stop the Therapy CapIf Congress doesn’t take action by the end of this year, access to physical, speech and occupational therapy services for stroke survivors on Medicare will be limited, or capped. Survivors needing more therapy than the caps allow won’t have access to it. This policy change will impact survivors who have been most severely impacted by their stroke and those who experience multiple strokes or adverse health events in 2014. Find out about what National Stroke Association is doing to “stop the therapy caps” and how you can help prevent this damaging policy from taking effect by sending a message.

Photo of man using laptopSome stroke survivors struggle with returning to work. We believe survivors need better resources, data and support to reduce those challenges. Legislation has been introduced by stroke survivors serving in the House and Senate to help survivors return to work. Find out more about this legislation and how you can help ensure these policy changes are enacted into law.
