Advocacy efforts by IOTA, IPTA, and ISHA members have been effective. The co-equity legislation has been signed and is effective July 1. 

Patients who receive physical therapy, occupational therapy or speech-language therapy may only have to pay a co-payment that is similar to the co-payment for their primary care visits. 

 Thank you to everyone who has contacted their legislator. For patients, this enhances their quality of life through access to necessary therapy services.
