The Kentucky Board of Physical Therapy has been
notified of a scam targeting our licensees and certificate holders. The
scam has also been reported by licensees of other State Physical
Licensees have reported receiving phone calls
'spoofing' the Kentucky Board of Physical Therapy phone number, which
makes calls appear as though they are coming from us.
The licensee is
threatened with an investigation by the Board and/or the FBI, and the
scammer demands personal information or money to resolve it.
Kentucky Board of Physical Therapy will not contact you to demand money
or personalized information. The Board DOES NOT accept payments over the
phone. If you believe that you may owe a balance to the Board, you can
confirm this balance and receive the most up-to-date information by
calling the Kentucky Board office.
If you do receive a call of this
nature, please contact the Kentucky Board of Physical Therapy directly
at (502) 429-7140 to inquire if there’s a valid, official reason for the
PTs and PTAs not credentialed in Kentucky – register for telehealth practice during Kentucky’s state of emergency.
Please read the instructions
on registering for the ability to practice telehealth in the Commonwealth of Kentucky during its state of emergency with an out-of-state license or certificate. After reviewing the instructions, click here
