Today was a good day!

After unanimous passage in it’s third reading in the Senate, HB 4643 (our Direct Access Bill) has officially passed out of both chambers of the Illinois General Assembly!

Next stop – the Governor’s desk! In 30 days, HB 4643 will be sent to the Governors office for his review and signature. Click here to brush up on how a bill becomes law in Illinois.

This important legislation will provide better and faster access to physical therapists for all populations, including Medicare patients, and will help in the fight against opioid abuse in Illinois, as physical therapy is a non-prescription, non- addictive way to reduce pain.

Thanks to all who helped in our advocacy efforts, including support from our members, legislators and friends of physical therapy – together we are making a difference!
