Welcome to AAPM&R’s Future Leaders Hill Day web page! We appreciate your office’s attention to issues important to physiatry and rehabilitation patients.
AAPM&R is the national medical specialty organization representing more than 9,000 physicians who are specialists in physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R). PM&R physicians, also known as physiatrists, are medical experts in treating a wide variety of medical conditions affecting the brain, spinal cord, nerves, bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, and tendons. PM&R physicians evaluate and treat injuries, illnesses, and disability, and are experts in designing comprehensive, patient-centered treatment plans. Physiatrists utilize cutting‐edge as well as time‐tested treatments to maximize function and quality of life.
This year’s top priorities for our DC fly-in on September 20, 2022 include:
- Restoring physician judgement to inpatient rehabilitation care by supporting the Access to Inpatient Rehabilitation Therapy Act of 2022 (H.R. 8746) also known as the "Three Hour Rule"
- Opposing further physician reimbursement cuts and encouraging a long-term solution to budget neutrality.
