Learn how to adapt your practice for the October 1 therapy cap changes.
New changes to the therapy cap calculation that will burden office staff and threaten payments are on their way. Starting Oct. 1, CMS will count outpatient therapy toward your patients’ therapy caps, meaning you’ll have to spend more time verifying with patients and outpatient departments how much therapy patients have had. Any therapy over the cap might have to be paid for by the patient. For claims above the $3,700 threshold for physical and speech therapies or occupational therapy, CMS will conduct a mandatory medical review.
CMS offers no instructions on how to deal with these new requirements, yet your practice will have to make serious adjustments.
Get the specifics on how to ensure proper payment, improve communication with patients and effectively minimize the impact on your practice’s workflow from nationally recognized expert Stephen M. Levine. On Thursday, September 6, he will walk you through all of the new therapy cap changes so you can:
- Save valuable time by learning how to effectively determine your patients’ therapy utilization
- Prevent payment denials by properly using the KX modifier
- Minimize costly disruptions to practice workflow
- Optimize collections by making patients aware of the new rules early
Oct. 1 will be here before you know it – make sure your practice is prepared and register for this important webinar today.
