The first podcast episode titled, "What PTs Need to Know Now," is narrated by APTA Vice President of Government Affairs Dave Mason. Visitors can listen to the feed directly from a computer or download it to an MP3 player.
The 6-minute podcast covers continuing legislative successes in Congress and state legislatures, recent rules changes announced by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, and the latest update on National Provider Identifier contingency plans.
