The Independent Physical Therapists of CA Files Unfair Competition Lawsuit Against Unlicensed Workers’ Compensation Network Brokers, One Call Medical and Align Networks

A lawsuit filed with a California state court accuses One Call Medical Inc. of running an illegal patient referral scheme driven by improper financial inducements, interfering with the right of injured workers to choose a treating physician within an employer’s medical provider network and acting as a claims administrator without being certified to do so.

The Independent Physical Therapists of California (iPTCA), a non-profit association of California physical therapists dedicated to advocating for physical therapists and their patients, announced today that it has filed suit against One Call Medical, Inc, D/B/A One Call Care Management, and Align Networks in the Superior Court of the state of California, County of San Diego- North County, Case No. 37-2017-00008817-CU-BT-NC. Click here to view the formal complaint. (To Review the Complaint, Please Click Here).

The Complaint in this unfair competition lawsuit alleges that iPTCA and its non-contracted members have suffered injury and lost money or property as the result of numerous unlawful, unfair, and deceptive or fraudulent business acts and practices engaged in by the defendants, which operate as unlicensed ‘middlemen’ between Workers’ Compensation payers and injured workers and their rehabilitation providers.

Dr. Paul Gaspar, DPT, President of iPTCA summarized the Complaint. “The Complaint details numerous allegedly unlawful activities by the defendants, particularly a referral scheme where defendants demand that physical therapists accede to significant discounts or potentially lose the ability to provide physical therapy services to large numbers of injured workers.” The Complaint explains how such conduct potentially violates numerous state laws, including, but not limited to unauthorized claims administration and violation of laws that tighten restrictions on injured worker referrals by prohibiting companies from offering discounts or other forms of compensation as an inducement for increasing business referrals.

According to Doctor Gaspar, “California’s Legislature approved an appropriate medical fee schedule for the care of injured workers in 2012 by passing Senate Bill 863 (DeLeon). It is unlikely, in my opinion, that they intended a significant percentage of these payments might be diverted away from direct patient care services toward an out-of-state middleman. Injured workers deserve the benefit of the resources the Legislature directed toward their care.”

“iPTCA is confident it will prevail in the lawsuit,” said Dr. Gaspar, “because as the Complaint alleges, the unlawful, unfair, and deceptive or fraudulent business acts and practices detailed in the Complaint have potentially harmed the Association and many of its members, have the potential to result in increased harms to consumers, and are contrary to state law and the California Legislature’s intent in passage of this reform legislation.”

Early rate registration is beginning now for The Tupler Technique® Training Program for professionals to be offered in June in NYC.

Since it is common for a DRA to go unnoticed by the patient and undiagnosed by the physician, patients may seek PT treatment with another musculoskeletal or neuromuscular diagnosis such as low back pain or pelvic floor dysfunction. These conditions may be comorbidities of DRA which can affect the course and prognosis of both.  It is therefore important for physical therapists to understand this connection and routinely check for a diastasis as part of any evaluation and  know how to treat a diastasis with the research and evidenced based Tupler Technique®.

The Tupler Technique® Training Program for professionals is taught three times year. The training program is two parts.  The first part is an eight  week home study program where professional teaches the program to two case studies, reads and watches all the written and video materials and learns the demonstration exam.  The second part is three days in New York City.  There is a clinic day, participation in Everybelly® Seminar and a written and demonstration exam.

After successful completion of the program, professions at their option, can work with me in a variety of different ways.  Click here to download the info package and  learn all the details and here to fill out an application.   We also have an affiliate program for professionals that refer their patients our products or services.  Our next training program starts June 1with the home study part of the program. The New York City class is August 27-29th.  Register before May 1 and get a $100 discount.  Feel free to contact Julie with any questions about the upcoming programs or to find out more about her exciting new work with platelet injections in linea alba in conjunction with the Tupler Technique® Program.

OTs and PTs – Support an Academic Therapy Program in Haiti

The Department of Rehabilitation of the Episcopal University of Haiti, Léogâne  needs the help and support of OTs and PTs in the USA.  There are many ways each and every one of us can help.
An overview of the program– The Faculty of Rehabilitation Sciences in Léogâne (FSRL) is a department of the Episcopal University of Haiti (UNEPH). Planning for FSRL began in 2011, when volunteers working at St Vincent’s Center for Handicapped Children realized how helpful it would be for St. Vincent’s to have Haitian therapists. The dream became a reality in Oct. 2015 when the first small class of students enrolled. First-year students take interdisciplinary courses at the FSIL nursing school in Léogâne, which is also a department of the Episcopal University. Second, third, and fourth year students specialize in OT or PT and graduate with a bachelor’s degree in Occupational or Physical Therapy.   The curriculum for the OT program has already been approved by the World Federation of OT, and the PT curriculum is now under review by the World Confederation of PT.  The Haiti Rehab Foundation (HRF), a 501c3,  was formed in 2014 to support the work of FSRL.

WHAT CAN MY MONEY DO?
$25-pay for learning supplies
$100-pay for 1 course for 1 student
$250-pay all fees, 1 mo., 1 student
$1000-cover cost of 1 faculty vol.
$4000-per year: fund a scholarship that will cover 1 student’s fees, tuition, room & board

THE NEED FOR REHAB IN HAITI is very high.  It is estimated that 1.1 million Haitians have disabling physical and/or mental conditions. There are only about 50 Haitian PTs.  and 1 Haitian OT, who have a bachelor’s degree from overseas, mostly from the Dominican Republic.
There are good programs in Haiti for rehab technicians.  However, rehab technicians don’t practice independently.  They often depend for supervision on the many foreign OTs and PTs who come for short-term medical missions.
