If Senate Bill 487 passes, patients will no longer be required to pay multiple co-payments for a single visit involving physical therapy appointments, chiropractic treatments, or occupational therapy. The bill is being sponsored by Bucks County Senator Charles McIllhinney (R), who stated that in some cases, the co-payments exceeded the amount the plan paid to the care provider.
Approval From Legislators and Care Providers
The bill won approval from state legislators and the president of the PA PHysical Therapy Association, Gregory White. Mr. White stated that he has received reports from patients that ‘this practice resulted in a significant financial burden and limited access to rehabilitation services.’
