Dear (Insert Legislators Name):
As a constituent I most respectfully ask that you introduce legislation during the 2023 legislative
session to permit Connecticut to join the Physical Therapy (PT) Compact.
 
What is the PT Compact? 
 
The PT Compact is an agreement between member states to improve access to physical therapy services for the public by increasing the mobility of eligible physical therapy providers to work in multiple states. This important legislation will assist with critical staffing shortage issues
which are substantially worse since the onset of the pandemic. Passage of PT Compact
legislation will ease the current staffing issues while increasing access for our patients.
 
Currently there are:
 25 member states actively issuing and accepting PT Compact privileges
 6 states with enacted legislation – not yet issuing or accepting PT Compact privileges
 4 states with compact legislation introduced including MA and RI 
 
Please email or call upon me with any questions. I sincerely appreciate you introducing this
important legislation which will improve access to physical therapy services for Connecticut’s
families.
 
Thank you,
