What is the Reimbursement Committee?
The APTA-Mississippi Reimbursement Committee consists of physical therapist volunteers from a cross-section of the profession throughout Mississippi.
Each committee member represents an individual practice setting. Committee members act as chair of a subcommittee to address issues specific to that practice setting.
What is the function of the Reimbursement Committee?
The APTA-Mississippi Reimbursement Committee’s four major functions are:
- Inform our members of reimbursement issues specific to Mississippi and nationally.
- Promote and support legislation in the State of Mississippi that is beneficial to therapists and patients in line with APTA and APTA-Mississippi’s mission.
- Promote, support and/or challenge new and existing policies of third-party payer sources to ensure the financial viability of physical therapy providers.
- Advocate for patients to ensure and/or obtain coverage of reasonable and necessary physical therapy services by third-party payers.
