Hello WVPTA Members:

Our co-pay legislation just passed Senate Judiciary on a unanimous vote.  Thanks to all who called or visited the legislature to support the bill.

It will be on passage stage on Saturday so it is not totally finished yet.  In reality, here is the process for the remainder of the legislature:

1) Bill will be reported at Senate session today at 11:00

2) Bill will be read a first time on Thursday session.

"HB 4426 is WV version of co-pay fairness. Read about other states experience in working for fairness"


Over thirty physical therapists, physical therapy assistants and students made their voices heard on February 21st at the State Capitol.  The Honorable Ryan Ferns, House of Delegates member and DPT, and Gina Brown, PTA, member of the WV Board of Physical Therapy, addressed participants in a legislative briefing.  Both speakers spoke about the importance of getting involved in the legislative process, and the direct impact of legislation on the practice of physical therapy.  Delegate Ferns, the only physical therapist serving in the legislature, recounted how he became interested in the legislative process after attending a WVPTA Lobby Day.
