I've Contacted Congressman Hill's Staff
My Congressman is Baron Hill from Indiana. I sent email messages to his health LA, Joel Bailey, and his overall legislative LA, Lori Pepper. If you haven't communicated with your Representative's office, I would urge you to do so. ATRA is asking Representatives to sign-on to the letter by May 1st.
The major point I made in my emails was tha CMS has provided documentation to Congress that recreational therapy is a covered service -- but hasn't made this clear to health care providers -- and the letter simply asks CMS to do this.
