So far, everyone seems to be looking at the impending Affordable Care Act through rose-colored glasses. Everyone except you providers that is. To you, you know the word "reform" actually means "cuts." Not to your patients, but to you in the form of lower and lower reimbursements (after all, everyone knows that doctors and therapists and nurses make too much money).

Like all medical professions, aquatic therapy is a business and to stay in business, you have to plan for the future. To that end, be looking for us to post more and more HRA stories from around the country in the hopes they will better help you navigate these uncharted waters, starting with this article from Dr. Kevin Smith, an anesthetist who has a problem about working for free.

While we at Aquatic Resources Network make no bones about the fact that we think the HRA represents a major blow against our industry and therapy in general, we know that their are other opinions out there. If you wish to so opine, feel free to comment to our postings or submit your own guest blog. We will happily supply you with your own complementary pair of rose-colored glasses.
