Message from Michael Moll, WATA VP, WI Rep to GLATA

As we bring to a close the 2016 year, I would like to thank the GLATA for their support of the WATA through two separate grants this year. The WATA received the Legislative Grant that was utilized to help fund the Third Party Reimbursement Pilot project. With these funds, the WATA has been able to help lead the direction of third party reimbursement in Wisconsin and make inroads with several payer’s that will certainly benefit our profession. The WATA also received the Professional Advancement Grant. These funds were used to offset the expense of maintaining our relationship with Stenger Government Relations, which is the largest expense for our organization. SGR’s representation of the WATA is very important in ensuring that our state practice act continues to allow us to provide all of the health care services to the active individuals that we care for. I can assure you that we are making every effort to make sure that the dues that you contribute to GLATA and WATA are well spent.

Thank you,

Michael Moll

WATA VP and WI Rep to GLATA.
