MAC Testifies in Support of “PT Fix” Legislation

We Need YOU to Contact Your State Representative TODAY and Ask Him or Her to Support House Bill 4712.

 On June 16, MAC Government Relations Chair Dr. R. James Gregg, Government Relations Committee member Dr. Dan Spencer, and Carl Alden testified in support of House Bill 4712, legislation that would fix an antiquated provision in Michigan law that does not allow physical therapists to accept a prescription from a doctor of chiropractic. Currently, chiropractors are the only physician group in Michigan from which PTs cannot by law accept a prescription.
 
The bill, introduce by state Rep. Kathy Crawford of Novi, proposes to change the physical therapy scope of practice to allow  physical therapists to accept a prescriptions from  chiropractors, and will result in all diagnosing physicians being able to write an order for patients to see the provider best suited to treat or co-treat them.
 
Eliminating this prohibition will enhance continuity of care and result in better results for patients.
 
To contact your state representative, put your zip code in the red, white, and blue “Write Your Legislators” box on the left and take action under “PT ‘Fix’ Introduced in Michigan House.”
