APTA's Student Assembly's Flash Action Strategy Starts Today!


The Flash Action Strategy (FAS) is a targeted advocacy campaign led by the Student Assembly Board of Directors (SABoD) in conjunction with APTA.

This year’s FAS calls for a repeal of the Medicare therapy cap, which places an arbitrary limitation on outpatient therapist services without regard to clinical appropriateness of care that discriminates against the most vulnerable Medicare beneficiaries. APTA believes that a full repeal of the therapy cap is necessary to ensure that patients have access to timely and appropriate care.

Students are encouraged to take action TODAY & TOMORROW (September 12 & 13) by:

  1. Visit APTA’s legislative action center to find a prewritten letter or email copy, or to send a tweet to your designated legislators.
  2. Download the free APTA Action app, where you can find out more about APTA’s legislative priorities, Congressional directory, talking points, and more including an opportunity to donate to PT-PAC.
  3. Learning about and discussing PT-PAC's importance of moving issues on Capitol Hill on behalf of the profession, and
  4. Supporting PT-PAC through a monetary contribution.
