Keywords:public policy, advocacy, professional engagement, HR 1906
Public policy advocacy is critical to the profession of Recreational Therapy. Currently, HR 1906, the Access to Inpatient Rehabilitation Therapy Act of 2015 has been introduced to the US House of Representatives. Essentially, if enacted into law, the bill will amend the Social Security Act to include Recreational Therapy among the therapy modalities that constitute an intensive rehabilitation therapy program in an inpatient rehabilitation hospital or unit. The designation of RT among the therapy modalities allows the rehabilitation treatment team to access RT services for use in the 3-hour rule.
