The RT profession takes a giant step!

Medavie Blue Cross announced today that patients diagnosed with asthma and/or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) will be linked to enhanced services and supports that allow them to seek advice and guidance from respiratory therapists (RRTs) to effectively manage their symptoms. To be eligible for the plan RTs must have a CRE/CAE designation and have CSRT professional liability insurance. The Medavie Blue Cross reimbursement program will be launched in early spring 2015. Patients who suffer from asthma and/or COPD will be able to self-refer to an RRT.
