CA PPG Says California Physicians Contradict Themselves Regarding Employment Legislation
Date:4/20/2011

SACRAMENTO, Calif., April 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- So which is it?  That's what California physical therapists want to know. The powerful lobbying group, the California Medical Association (CMA), is coming out strongly against legislation, AB 1360 (Swanson, D-Alameda), to give rural area hospitals the ability to employ physicians but at the same time is strongly supporting a bill, AB 783, authored by Assembly Member Mary Hayashi, to give physician controlled medical corporations the ability to employ physical therapists. The rationale for supporting AB 783 includes the very same reasons the hospitals are using as to why they should be allowed to employ physicians.  

"You can't have it both ways," said Dr. Paul Gaspar, DPT and owner of a physical therapy practice in southern California. "There is strong evidence that patient care is compromised when physicians employ physical therapists, and the CMA has not been able to dispute this. However, there is no proof that care suffers when hospitals employ physicians. The CMA's contradictory viewpoints on these bills suggest that their main interest is not to protect patients, but to 'bring home the bacon' for their members."

"There's a reason why laws are in place to protect consumers from health care professionals who would stand to financially gain from treatments they advise patients receive," said Dave Powers, PT, DPT, MBA, president of the California Private Practice Group of physical therapists. "These laws are the only things that stand between patients and physician 'referrals for profit.' Physicians are being told they can make huge profits for their bottom line if they employ physical therapists or unlicensed personnel and keep all physical therapy patient care within their medical corporations."

Adds San Francisco physical therapist Jerry Durham, "Physical therapy is just the start. If AB 783 passes, it will set a dangerous precedent in California that
