APTA released 2013: A Year in Review

If you practice in the United States, I recommend you watch this video, released today by the APTA.  It highlights some issues that may be affecting us as we move forward.  One quote made by Dr. Rockar, highlights the changing reimbursement system (which is important for all of us to understand. 5:48 in the video).

“We have also heard the message loud and clear that the procedure-based system of payment that we have been getting reimbursed on for a number of years is just something that is not working for the payers nor the healthcare system and its sustainability.  So an alternative payment system is something that we have been looking at and it is currently going through the AMA CPT process. And we are looking to have some movement on that initiative in 2014 so that by 2015 we can educate the members more and more about it.” – Dr. Paul Rockar, APTA President

What are your thoughts on this change?  Are we moving in the right direction?  I would love to hear from you.

Happy New Years!!!!!

  1. Hello, the whole thing is going nicely here and ofcourse every
    one is sharing information, that’s really fine,
    keep up writing.

  2. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people
    could connect with it better. Youve got
    an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

  3. The healthy condition of the hair depends, to
    a very large extent, on the intake of sufficient amounts
    of essential nutrients in the daily diet. Before your next trip to
    the great outdoors, think about these cover-up
    methods:. Commercial shaving creams usually consist of some sort of animal-based
    or hydrogenated vegetable-based fat, such as stearic acid,
    chemicals meant to create the right texture and
    p – H, fragrances and dyes, and water.

  4. Can I just say what a relief to uncover someone who truly understands what they are talking about on the internet.
    You definitely realize how to bring a prpblem to light and make it important.
    A loot more people ought to look at this and understand
    this side of the story. I can’t believe you are not more popular since you surely hzve the gift.
