Physical therapists provide incredibly valuable services to their patients and their communities, yet our services are often laden with administrative burden and payment pressure. Speakers will explore and explain compliance and optimal application of regulations that communicate the value of physical therapist services, resulting in a better bottom line.

Review Medicare’s physical therapy documentation and billing requirements and the recent telehealth policy changes and how physical therapy providers can implement telehealth in their practice with confidence that they are doing it legally and ethically.

Finally, guest speakers will provide an overview of HIPAA, self-referral, and anti-kickback statutes and regulations and discuss the implications of such laws for physical therapy providers.
