The 2016 State Policy & Payment Forum is being held September 17-18, 2016, at the Omni William Penn Hotel in Pittsburgh, PA.
This event is designed to increase your involvement in, and knowledge of state legislative issues that have an impact on the practice and payment of physical therapy, and to improve your advocacy efforts at the state level. Programming will focus on physical therapy payment & legislative issues at the state level and will include presentations on state scope of practice issues, payment issues, state legislative advocacy, Medicaid, infringement challenges, effective legislative testifying, state licensure issues, and much more!
You will hear from influential public policy makers and other physical therapy advocates; collaborate with colleagues in developing your chapter or section's advocacy efforts; and network with other professionals from across the country. Chapter presidents, legislative chairs, reimbursement chairs, chapter executives, lobbyists, students, and anyone interested in state-level advocacy should attend!
