DOD ignores judge, cuts physical therapy for soldiers’ disabled children

DOD ignores judge, cuts physical therapy for soldiers’ disabled children | Physical Therapy & Ethics -Lawver, C | Scoop.it
Defense Department (DOD) officials decided to stop covering a certain form of physical therapy for the disable children of military members, despite an administrative judge’s ruling that the treatment is covered under the law.
“For my daughter, this therapy means life, death or some horrible surgery, but she’s not alone — there are 27 other military families who use the center where Kaitlyn goes,” Jennifer Samuels told Military Times.
DOD decided not to pay for a physical therapy program for Kaitlyn Samuels, a 15-year-old girl with severe neuromuscular scoliosis – a spinal curvature caused by her brain’s inability to send the signals needed to keep her spine in proper alignment. Initially, DOD’s Tricare paid for the therapy sessions. The government eventually revoked coverage on the theory that the therapy, because it took place while Kaitlyn sat on a horse, is an experimental “hippotherapy” not covered by law.
