Dear APTA Indiana Members,
I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself as APTA Indiana’s new Practice and Payment Specialist. I am eager to begin this new role and launch into serving you as a resource for your practice, payment or advocacy needs!
As I work alongside you to advocate the value of physical therapy before payers and lawmakers and assist you with your practice and payment needs, together we will carry forward the mission of APTA Indiana, maximizing our residents’ lifelong health, function, and wellbeing.
My background includes over 20 years of clinical experience working in a hospital-based outpatient setting with patients with orthopedic, vestibular, balance, and concussion impairments. I also have experience working in acute care, home health care, and skilled nursing. This experience has developed my appreciation and love for what our profession does across the continuum of care.
Thank you all for the value you bring to our profession. I look forward to working with you.
Andrea Lausch, PT, DPT
APTA Indiana Practice and Payment Specialist
