    Happy National PT Month 2018!

    ’Tis the season for changing leaves, hot cider, pumpkin-spiced everything, and, of course, physical therapists. That’s because the APTA named October National PT Month —and they couldn’t have picked a better month. (It is, after all, when I was born. But that’s beside the point.) The true reason for celebrating this October is the wonderful work you and your colleagues do to promote health and wellbeing, restore and maintain function, and improve people’s lives—all without the use …

    Beignets on the Bayou: Top #APTACSM Social Moments of 2018

    Last week, the WebPT team paraded through NOLA (literally) to celebrate our 10th anniversary at the APTA’s largest conference, the Combined Sections Meeting (CSM) . And by gumbo, was it a treat. We got to gather in the great—and super humid—state of Louisiana with 17,000 other physical therapy professionals to learn, network, connect, and all that jazz. (Seriously, there was a lot of jazz.) And speaking of jazz, nothing gets me more jazzed than experiencing the buzz …

    What's Going On with the 2018 Therapy Cap?

    Update: The therapy cap has been repealed as of February 9, 2018. Scroll to the last section of this post for details. Nowadays, you might be tempted to tune out, turn off, and log out at the mere mention of anything political. And considering the current climate within our legislative system, I certainly wouldn’t fault you for wanting to avoid the chaos. However, putting on the blinders could prevent you from learning crucial information. After all, the …

    Straight to the Source: How to Get Employers On Board with Population Health

    Healthcare spending has always been a touchy subject—and that might be truer now than ever before. Despite the fact that the United States spends more money on health care than any other country, that massive expenditure hasn’t necessarily translated into better health outcomes. Clearly, something needs to change, which is why many healthcare providers—including physical therapists—are fundamentally shifting the way health care is managed. Specifically, they are starting to explore care delivery models that allow them to …

    Ch-Ch-Changes: Tricare Updates in 2018

    Change seems inevitable in the healthcare sphere—especially when it comes to federal healthcare programs. That’s why I wasn’t surprised to hear about the many changes in store for Tricare in 2018. And when it comes to ch-ch-changes, even the starman himself advises you to “turn and face the strange.” Fortunately, we’ll be right there with you, facing those same changes and making sure rehab therapy providers can submit Tricare claims after January 1 without missing a beat. …

    Direct Access Laws by State (Rhode Island-Wyoming)

    Well folks, it’s been a heck of a journey, but we’ve finally made it to the last leg. In the final installment of this four-part series, we’ll be hitting up New England and making our way cross-country to the Cowboy State. (Previously, I covered Alabama - Hawaii , Idaho - Mississippi , and Missouri - Pennsylvania .) But before we get down to business, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention that I’m by no means a …

    Direct Access Laws by State (Missouri-Pennsylvania)

    If you haven’t been keeping up with the WebPT Blog over the past few days, here’s what you’ve missed: I’ve been breaking down all of the state-level direct access laws from coast to coast. (You can check out the laws for Alabama to Hawaii here and Idaho to Mississippi here .) If you have been keeping up, then welcome back! (Cue the “Welcome Back, Kotter” theme song.) Today, I’m tackling the laws from M to P—that’s Missouri …

    Direct Access Laws by State (Idaho-Mississippi)

    Yesterday, I broke down the what’s what of direct access laws by state, starting in Alabama and ending in Hawaii . Today, I’m continuing our guided tour of direct access law by kicking things off in Idaho and making our way down the list to Mississippi. (Don’t worry about gas money: we’ll do it all from the comfort of our homes or offices.) Just to reiterate, I’m not a legal or compliance expert, and all of the …

    The PT's Guide to Direct Access Law in All 50 States

    As of 2015, all 50 states are direct access states. That means patients across the entire US have the power to choose which physical therapist they want to see, and they can do so without first obtaining a physician referral. There’s just one caveat: Each state has its own unique set of laws that lay out the terms of direct access. Not only that, but these laws are frequently adjusted and updated—and they’re usually encrypted in all …
