Lobby Day 2018
Join your AMTA-NY Chapter members Tuesday May 8th in meeting with legislators of New York State.
We will be discussing inclusion of NYS licensed massage therapists as a provider of massage therapy services that can be reimbursed by NYS Worker’s Compensation. We will also be pursuing efforts to combat illegal practice in our profession.
We will meet on Monday, May 7th at 6 pm for dinner and a briefing. On Tuesday, May 8th we’ll head to the Capitol for a full day of lobbying.
Overnight rooms (shared) will be provided for those traveling distance
Let our voices be heard!
This year, we are supporting the following legislation:
Would establish a fee schedule for massage therapy in the same manner as physical and occupational therapy, and allow an injured employee to receive reimbursement for massage therapy services when provided by a licensed massage therapist. Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes relevant to licensed massage therapists’ scope of practice include: 97010, 97110, 97124, 97140 and 97799.
