Stop the Therapy Caps
If 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.
Have Questions About the Affordable Care Act?
health insurance marketplaces created in the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare)

health insurance options are available to you? Have you checked to see if
you qualify for financial assistance?

Help Stroke Survivors Return to Work
Some 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.
