Back in the lawless days of the wild, wild west, people made up their own rules: agreements were made with handshakes and disputes were settled with barroom brawls. My, how times have changed. Nowadays, there are so many rules, it’s tough to keep ’em all straight. But, that’s not necessarily a bad thing—especially if you know the rules and how they affect your practice. If you get a handle on those things, then we reckon you’ll get that gold star and white hat in no time. And if you’re willing to fight for your profession at the state and national level, you might just be able to wrangle some regulatory changes that actually work in your favor (unrestricted direct access, anyone?).
In this special end – of-the-year webinar, we’ll detail the bucking broncos, shifty cheats, and ruthless outlaws (we mean, the legislative and regulatory trends, including Final Rule updates for 2018) that’ll impact PTs, OTs, and SLPs most in 2018 and beyond. Hosts Dr. Heidi Jannenga, PT, DPT, ATC/L and wannabe-sheriff Charlotte Bohnett will outline what these changes mean to you, to your practice, and to the entire rehab industry—and what to do about it all. Specifically, they’ll cover:
- Merit-Based Incentive Payment System
- Therapy cap
- Interstate licensure compact
- Direct access
- Complexity-based evaluation codes
