Direct Access Laws per Physical Therapy

A quote I found regarding medical homes in AR–they were talking about adding hip and knee replacement and congestive heart failure but of course these quotes will apply to all episodes.
(1) The type or types of small businesses that will be directly affected by the proposed rule, bear
the cost of the proposed rule, or directly benefit from the proposed rule. Health Care providers providing services for conditions covered under episodes included in the Arkansas Health Care Payment Improvement Initiative.

(2) A description of how small businesses will be adversely affected. Some health care providers may benefit from the episode performance payment model, while those providing services that do not meet certain cost and quality standards will see reduced provider revenue. Impact to any individual provider will depend on the provider’s behavior and performance.

* The federal government has promised to pay the full cost of expansion until 2017. By 2020, states would shoulder 10 percent of the costs.
