In order to provide treatment without a referral to a patient for ten (10) consecutive business days, a PT must possess a doctoral degree in physical therapy or have completed thirty (30) continuing competence units (CCUs) in differential diagnosis. If a PT with a doctoral degree has completed a fellowship or residency, the number increases to 15 consecutive business days.


Because two of my therapists have DPTs, we both meet the requirement for treating without a referral for 10 consecutive business days. However, as flawed as this is, our two therapists who have been practicing the longest and have advanced training, do not qualify for the treatment without a referral unless they complete the 30 CCUs in differential diagnosis.


FAQs:Do the 30 CCUs in the area of differential diagnosis need to be in 1 course/activity?No, the 30 CCUs can be from several courses/activities and can be tickled out of a larger course as long as there is documented evidence supporting the number of CCUs in the area of differential diagnosis. 7/22/2019


Does the differential diagnosis course/activity need to be approved through the Continuing Competence Approval Process (CCAP)?No, any course/activity in the area of differential diagnosis or with differential diagnosis content can qualify toward the requirement. However, without CCAP approval, the CCUs cannot be used to meet the renewal requirement.
