A new podcast discusses how and why APTA adopted a position on medically necessary physical therapy services and provides physical therapists with a framework for using the definition to demonstrate and evaluate the value of physical therapy services.
APTA's position is modeled after Model Contractual Language for Medical Necessity, developed by the Center for Health Policy at Stanford University. The key pillars of the concept presented in this model and discussed in detail in the podcast are authority, purpose, scope, evidence, and value.
