Nevada Health Care Providers Must Disclose Interest in Physical Therapy Business

Another Nevada legislative session has come and is almost gone.

I will report on interesting legislative developments over the next few months.

AB 468, effective October 1, 2007, requires providers of health care who refer patients to or recommend physical therapy to a patient to provide a written disclosure to the patient of any financial interests that the provider of health care has in a facility recommended or to which a patient is referred. This bill also clarifies that this new requirement does not authorize a referral or recommendation which is otherwise prohibited.
