12:30 Legislative Advocacy and Payment

HB 5783 – PASSED May 24, 2018 - Amendment to the Public Health Code

Requires specific documentation of orifice penetration when it occurs for treatment of a patient in several instances and settings

Requires record retention for 15 years after episode of care is concluded

HB 5793 – PASSED May 24, 2018 - Amendment to the Public Health Code

Requires the presence of a chaperone if medical treatment is performed on a minor that involves penetration

The MPTA views this as a positive development because it solidifies PT pelvic floor practice in statute.

 Effective June 12, 2018 Public Act 62 of 2018 amended the Motor Vehicle Code to add physical therapists to the list of individuals who are able to authorize/approve the need for disability parking placards

Ethics of this, Education to come
