Utah Physical Therapy Association
What Can the UPTA Do for You?
While your membership investment may possibly return its cost value to you, another of the primary benefits is a voice in the future of the physical therapy profession in Utah. This voice is heard through the efforts of the association and its representatives regarding practice and reimbursement matters before the legislature and other state agencies. Below are just a few examples:
- Patrolling, commenting, and lobbying to curtail efforts by other organizations who wish to pass legislation preventing physical therapists from working in the full scope of our practice.
- Continually battling and holding open discussions with various payer sources including insurance companies to oppose and, if needed, contest unfavorable fee schedules;
- Stopped the application of the Medicare fee cap to workers’ compensation;
- Work to pass an updated and more modern practice act.
