Data are emerging that show early physical therapy decreases opioid use. How do we make sure that these data lead to changes in health care policy? This panel will include experts from the health care insurance industry, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), integrated payer systems, private practice, and the health services research arena. The Rothstein Roundtable is presented annually in honor of PTJ's former Editor in Chief, Jules M. Rothstein (1945-2005), who never met a topic he couldn't argue from all sides.
