Current Legislative Action- 

March 11th, 2:43 p.m.  Success, HB 2436 has PASSED!  Fair Co-Pay legislation passes both the House and Senate.  Thank you to all of the OT Practitioners who helped advocate for this bill!


March 11th, 12:00 p.m. HB 2436 which contains Fair Pay language makes it out of the Senate- We Need your Action!

Please ask your House Delegates to vote to pass HB 2436,  We need all WVOTA members to contact them by phone, message, or email now.

As you know, SB 732 got stalled in the House so Senator Tarr wrote an amendment to include the language that we wanted from SB 732 "Prohibiting insurer from imposing copay for certain services" be put into the bill mentioned above.  We now need to have the House of Delegates vote for this bill.  We have until midnight Saturday, March 11 for this bill to pass. When you contact your Delegate just let them know you support the bill and that they should vote for it. 


We are energized by the amount of member engagement with this effort and the coordinated effort between the three professional organizations. We will continue to work together with WVPTA and WVSHA in the next legislative session. All of the work done this session to raise awareness of our professions, the impact of high co-pays on the functioning of West Virginians, and this bill are an investment in next year that will pay dividends.
