In order to protect Medicare beneficiaries’ access to care, Representatives Bobby Rush (D-IL) and Jason Smith (R-MO) recently introduced the Stabilizing Medicare Access to Rehabilitation and Therapy (SMART) Act (H.R. 5536).
If passed, this legislation would suspend the therapist assistant cut for this year and protect rural and underserved communities from the reduction. It would also finally allow to practice as their state license permits in regard to assistant supervision.
