Court of Appeal decision

Whether a doctor has the right to bill for physical therapy services without a licensed physical therapist is a complicated issue. The answer to this question will be determined in part by the facts of the case, the law of the state, and the parties involved. In this case, a doctor sued the Board of Physical Therapy, arguing that he was not entitled to charge for physical therapy services because he did not have a licensed physical therapist. This lawsuit was initially won, but the Board of Physical Therapy sued the doctor and won an appeal. The Court of Appeals reversed the ruling, thereby putting the case in dispute.

The Board of Physical Therapy and the American Medical Association both filed amicus briefs in support of the doctor's right to offer physical therapy. In an opinion letter issued by the Kentucky Medical Licensing Board, the board argues that physicians have a legal right to bill for physical therapy, and the letter supports this right.

Physiotherapy Board of New Zealand

Physiotherapists in New Zealand must be registered with the Physiotherapy Board of New Zealand to practice. The Board sets the standards of physiotherapists and monitors their competence. This body is also responsible for registering overseas-trained physiotherapists. The board also offers a self-assessment tool for physiotherapists who have not completed their training in New Zealand.

The Physiotherapy Board of New Zealand was formed on 24 November 2021. The Board is governed by the Health Practitioners Competence Assurance Act 2003. This act protects the public by ensuring that all physiotherapists are qualified.
