According to the American Physical Therapy Association, the term "referral for profit," (RFP) in the context of physical therapy practice, refers to "a financial relationship in which a physician refers patients for physical therapy treatment and derives a financial benefit from the referral." (60) The most common referral for profit scheme is called "physician owned physical therapy services," known by the acronym POPTS, in which physicians have an ownership interest in the physical therapy practices to which they refer.
