On September 18, 2019, PPS, as a member of the Alliance for Integrity in Medicare (AIM) – a broad coalition of medical specialty, laboratory, radiation oncology, and medical imaging groups committed to ending the practice of inappropriate physician self-referral – sent a letter to the House Ways & Means Committee and the House Energy & Commerce Committee asking for committee action on The Promoting Integrity in Medicare Act (H.R. 2143), which seeks to remove physical therapists and others from the In-Office Ancillary Services Exception (IOASE). 

Here's the link to the document on the PPS website.

    Support of HR 2143

    Jean Thompson | September 21, 2019 at 2:42 PM

    For many years, I have been in support of eliminating physical therapists working for physicians. I see this practice growing as physicians look to supplement their income in various ways, inc owning PT clinics, labs, etc. I am in support of HR 2143 and would like to submit testimony to our HR representative. Please email me the contact information at the appropriate time in order for me to support this bill.
