I hope everyone reading this had a safe and happy Christmas. Like many of you, I am looking forward to an exciting 2008. Let me take this time to extend my best wishes for a Happy New Year! Be safe during your celebrations.
The good news – President Bush recently signed a bill that will block the proposed 10% fee schedule cuts and keep the exceptions process intact for the Medicare cap on outpatient physical therapy services. What does this mean? Thousands of patients covered by Medicare will be able to keep their access to quality outpatient physical therapy AND the Physical Therapists will get paid for providing care.
Hopefully, 2008 will include many more good moments for Physical Therapists.
