Stroke Survivors Deserve Better

If Congress does not act before March 31st, stroke patients on Medicare will face frightening limits on the outpatient therapy needed to regain vital skills like walking and talking. The typical Medicare beneficiary has a $1,900 therapy cap, which usually only amounts to 3-5 weeks of crucial therapy. Our stroke survivors deserve better. Tell Congress to remove these arbitrary caps once-and-for-all!

Let's Make Physical Education Part of Every Student's School Day!
