Model Aquatic Code... A Fight in the Making?

Nanny state in aquatics?Many in the aquatics industry are furious at the idea of a growing federal nanny state.

They watched in anger as the law of unintended consequences played out last year: unable to renovate, many pools simply closed in order to "comply" with the Virginia Graema Backer Act.

So forgive them if they are a bit gun-shy at the thought of a single federally-established "model" regulation for all pools.

What IS coming down the pike?

2011 ATU Class Schedule
womens aquatic therapy cover Introducing ATU On-Demand

After many nagging emails from you wondering about next year's classes, we are happy to announce our ATU 2011 catalog. While we will be mainly focusing on facilities and polyclinics for the new year, we did manage to carve out room for a slate of new main campus classes for you individual therapists out there. So how do shoulders and neuro and woman's studies tickle your fins?

Besides the shiny new curriculum, another fresh option we are offering is our On-Demand program for the cash-challenged among you which saves you $100 over this year's classes*.  The catch is we only hold them if enough of you are interested. If we get 10 paid registrants 8 weeks before class, we will honor your enrollment and hold the class. If we don't get 10 by the performance date, we cancel and give refunds.

So take a look at these wonderful workshops and if any strike your fancy, spread the word so we can make sure to activate them. There will only be six Minneapolis courses next year and each one is capped at 25.

Peruse our 2011 catalog here...

Functional or just fun? Aquatic therapy's place at the billing table

Billing for aquatic therapyFor some reason, insurance companies have it in their respective heads that aquatic therapy requires extra special justification.

Payers will often make the argument that rehab in water isn't functional.
