Take advantage of ICD-10 delay
HealthLeaders Media
With the ICD-10 transition delayed until Oct. 1, 2015, physicians have more time to assess their switchover programs and look for weak points. Working with referral partners is likely to be a shortcoming for most physician practices, and the ICD-10 delay means you can fix the problem.

$10 a month can help to defend physical therapy in South Carolina
SCAPTA
While we have been busy defending the PT practice, SCAPTA has also been actively working on co-pay legislation to begin to limit the amount of co-pays some of our patients have to pay each and every time they come they see a PT. This legislation can have a direct effect on not only the patients we serve, but all practice areas. We need funding to support legislative activities to protect our profession in South Carolina. Make a recurring gift of just $10 and make a difference.

HealthLeaders Media
If a patient doesn't pay his health insurance premiums, the insurer doesn't have to pay the provider for care rendered during the grace period. That means that up to two months of provider services may not be reimbursed.

Physical therapy better long-term treatment for meniscal tears, OA patients
Physical Therapy Products
A New England Journal of Medicine study revealed that surgery may not always be the best approach for patients with osteoarthritis and meniscal tears, and physical therapy may be a better long-term treatment option. The Meniscal Tear in Osteoarthritis Research study yielded results showing no major variation in functional improvement six months after the patients were subjected to treatments with either postoperative physical therapy or standard physical therapy alone, according to a news report in BusByway.

When foot orthotics and physical therapy meet
Chiropractic Economics
From stretching and strength training, to manual therapy and muscle stimulation, there are quiet a few variables that fall beneath the umbrella of physical therapy, including foot orthotics, which are especially common when dealing with issues that involve the feet and ankles. If a patient is suffering from Achilles tendinitis, then foot orthotics can play a key role in relief from this painful condition. Similarly, if one notices that a client has very flat feet and a tendency to overpronate, or roll the feet inward to an unhealthy degree, foot orthotics may be a necessary step on the road to recovery.

PT in Motion
Physical therapy researchers returned to Capitol Hill June 24-25 to advocate on behalf of rehabilitation research funding, and to press for passage of a Senate bill that would better coordinate these efforts within the National Institutes of Health. Coordinated by APTA and sponsored by the Section on Research, the "fly-in" involved 10 researchers from 10 states who met with staff of the House and Senate appropriations committees and their individual members of Congress to talk about the value of rehabilitation research.

Report: Healthcare spending set to spike by 6.8 percent in 2015
Modern Healthcare
Healthcare spending is expected to jump by 6.8 percent next year, spurred by the recovering economy and increased insurance coverage, according to an analysis by PwC's Health Research Institute. The boost in spending follows a span in which healthcare expenditures had grown at a slower clip than the often double-digit increases of the 1990s and early 2000s.

HHS sets enrollment rules for year 2 of Obamacare
The Washington Post
The Obama administration recently proposed new rules to let most Americans with health plans in the federal health insurance marketplace be enrolled automatically in a second year of coverage, but the approach prompted swift questions about how it would work and who would benefit. Under the proposed method by federal health officials, the government will renew people in their current health plans as long as their incomes and covered family members are not changing — and as long as the plan will be offered through the federal marketplace for 2015.
