2017 IPTA Lobby Day - Wednesday, March 8, 2017 at Prairie Meadows Conference Center, Altoona, Iowa
New this year, we are hosting a Legislative Briefing and Reception at the IPTA 2017 Spring Conference. Join IPTA and your colleagues on Wednesday, March 8 from 3:00 - 4:30 p.m. to learn about the bills in the legislature that have a direct impact on your profession. Then stay for the reception from 5-7 p.m. where you will have the opportunity to meet and discuss the issues that are important to our profession with your legislator.
The 2016 IPTA Lobby Day was a success! Thank you to the IPTA members & students who attended and spoke with your legislators. To view the Lobby Day photo gallery, click here.
On Thursday, July 2, 2015, Iowa Governor Terry E. Branstad took action on 14 bills including the signing of SF505 which included the copay legislation language. The Iowa Physical Therapy Association is extremely pleased to see the legislation has been signed and was in effect as of July 1, 2015.
This change will affect health plans delivered, issued for delivery and continued or renewed in Iowa on or after July 1, 2015. If you have patients who are still responsible for high co-pays please direct them to their insurance company.
We are very grateful to those who responded to our action alert to contact the governor by postcard and email. It was a grassroots effort that yielded great results four our profession. Thank you all for your commitment to our profession and patients!
