Before you indulge in your appetizers, make sure to take note of this announcement first from the FSBPT.
The Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy (FSBPT) has recently announced that they will no longer be accepting bank checks as forms of payment when registering for an exam or purchasing related services from the Federation.
At its August 14, 2008 conference call, the FSBPT Board of Directors decided to eliminate the option of paying by check when registering for an exam or purchasing related services from the Federation. Candidates and licensees will be required to pay by credit card or debit card for all transactions.
Rationale: Currently a very small percentage of transactions are paid for by check or money order. Eliminating checks will expedite the processing of requests and reduce the staff time required. If a candidate decides to cancel their registration, paying by credit card expedites the entire refund process.
Please Note: This change will be effective October 1, 2008.
