Despite growing awareness over the tremendous utilization costs of MSK, chronic pain, and the opioid epidemic, the value of physical therapy seems to go unrecognized and under-appreciated by payers, our medical colleagues, and the public. Several problems directly contribute to PT’s value gap and continue to limit our reimbursements and referrals outside of the traditional physician-therapist pipeline. These problems are multi-factorial and include isolation as a profession, communication problems, standardization, case management, care silos, and historical basis of the medical mind set. In this presentation, we will cover pertinent topics and brainstorm together on practical ideas for participating in value-based care.
