FLORIDA UPDATE BY TAD FISHER - FPTA CEO

Thanks so much to all who utilize PT4PT. Your support is making a difference in Florida PT Advocacy. We are working hard on the final passage of the FPTA priority legislation modernizing the Physical Therapy practice act. This week we hope to pass HB 107 and SB 450 on to Governor Scott to sign into law.

 

Here is our progress report for the week: HB 107 by Rep. Travis Cummings (R-Orange Park) and SB 450 by Senator Denise Grimsley (R-Sebring) modernize the Physical Therapy Practice Act through patient direct access and continuity of care. Specifically, the legislation modernizes the definition of “practice of physical therapy” to be consistent with comprehensive educational training and national trends. In addition, the bill ensures appropriate use of the title of a physical therapist and a physical therapist assistant. The legislation increases the direct access time frame for physical therapy treatment for patient from 21 days to 30 days.  The bills also ensures seasonal visitors with a referral or consult from a physician licensed in another state can continue care without interruption. 107 is on the calendar of bills ready for House floor consideration. On the Senate side, the full Senate took up and passed SB 450 by a vote of 37 to 0 on January 28th.
