Patient Self Referral Has Come to Kansas!
Effective July 1, 2013 individuals in Kansas can seek the services of a physical therapist without a physician referral. These are exciting times and an ideal the KPTA has had its sights on for the past 25 years! Please refer to HB 2066 for the specifics of the law and expect more education on understanding what this means for your practice on this website and at the upcoming Fall Conference in Manhattan (November 8-10).
In the meantime, the KPTA Legislative Committee has developed some FAQs.
