KORT Physical Therapy and Healthcare Reform: Early Intervention Drives Costs Down for Patients, Insurance Companies
Date:9/7/2013

Lexington, Kentucky (PRWEB) September 07, 2013

KORT physical therapist Dr. Robbie Hinkebein PT, DPT, OCS, ATC and a team of more than 100 physical therapists from around the country met with legislators in Washington, D.C. at the end of July to discuss issues and challenges facing the healthcare industry. Hinkebein met with Kentucky Congressional Representative Ed Whitfield (1st District), Representative Brett Guthrie (2nd District), Representative Hal Rogers (5th District) and Representative Andy Barr (6th District) to discuss pending legislation affecting Medicare reform and rising healthcare costs.

“It was an amazing opportunity to sit down one-on-one with our local members of Congress and speak honestly about real cost savings issues related to healthcare reform, and discuss how the physical therapy profession can solve some of these issues,” said Dr. Hinkebein. “I thoroughly appreciated the time and dialogue that our local Congressmen gave to help find solutions that will improve how we provide healthcare to all our citizens.”

According to Hinkebein, early intervention and treatment is one way to reduce healthcare costs. Studies have shown that patients who seek treatment for acute or chronic injuries early on have better outcomes and spend less time in therapy.

Early Intervention Costs Patients and Insurance Companies Less
