HB 4643 Passed Senate!

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 Governor's 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!

Thank You Donors!

Your donations to the IPT-PAC have made a huge difference as we have moved to gain direct access.  This year we have raised a very impressive $25,503 to date, including a record 104 donors who gave during the District Challenge.  However, the path to direct access has been an expensive one as well.  We have already given $34,000 in campaign donations this year, with many requests coming in each week.  Plus, we still have many items on our Legislative agenda.


Our next big challenge will be the Fourth Annual WEEK OF GIVING, which will run from October 7 – October 21.  Not only will we be celebrating National Physical Therapy Month, we hope you will consider donating to the IPT-PAC and promoting physical therapy in Illinois.
