View APTAs PT in Motion to hear how Michigan is making headline news.
MPTA is proud to have passed direct consumer access to physical therapy services in Michigan. Governor Snyder has signed the bill into law on July 1, 2014 and it's effective date will be January 1, 2015.
SB 690 would not have passed without the language in the 4 tie-barred bills, which are SB 691- SB 694. These 4 bills allow third party payers (insurance companies) to still require a prescription for PT services if they so choose.
*Legal changes that allow direct consumer access (legislative process) do NOT automatically affect
reimbursement (insurance companies policy changes).
Learn more about the new Direct Consumer Access law by attending the MPTA Fall Conference on October 24-25, 2014 in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
