    Motivation Restoration: How to Effectively Engage Employees in Your PT Clinic

    What if I told you that no single policy or engagement plan would be enough to motivate all of your employees —no matter how good it is? I hope you’re comfortable with your answer to that question, because that’s exactly what I’m telling you. There is no one-size-fits-all master plan that will satisfy the needs of every single one of your employees (unless, of course, you have only one employee or you employ a handful of clones). …

    The Complete Guide to Physical Therapy Billing

    When Should PTs Use the New X Modifiers?

    Last July, we covered updated guidance on X modifier use from the Centers for Medicare and Medicare Services (CMS). As WebPT’s Erica McDermott explains, “beginning July 1, 2019, CMS will unbundle NCCI edit pairs when providers attach the appropriate modifier (59, XE, XS, XP, or XU) to either the first-column or second-column code (assuming, of course, that the situation warrants the use of one of these modifiers).” While it’s still unclear what, exactly, this means for PTs, …

But, while there are tons of certifications out there, there are only a handful of sanctioned, board-certified clinical specializations for physical therapists.  We did some digging to explore what these …
