Statement from Larry Minnix, President & CEO, American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging, On the Therapy Cap Coalition Press Conference
Date:3/3/2010

WASHINGTON, March 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following is a statement from Larry Minnix, President & CEO, American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging, on the therapy cap coalition press conference:

"We thank Congress and President Obama for extending the Medicare Part B therapy cap exceptions process for an additional 30 days.  The exceptions process works well to ensure that Medicare beneficiaries get the therapy they need to resume their regular activities and maintain as much independence as possible.

We urge Congress and the Administration to come to a more permanent solution to allow seniors to get essential therapy in the venue they choose, by extending the exceptions process permanently or by repealing therapy caps before the current extension ends."
