Physical Therapist

Posted By: Bridget Daly on March 16, 2017

We have seen a large increase of physical therapist referring patients for
orthotics and DME care. The problem is the patients are often not being seen
by physicians. Leaving it nearly impossible to get a DWO and notes to
justify services physical therapy have asked for.

Is anyone else seeing this trend? How are you handling this issue?
