2013 Medicare Therapy Changes

It’s a new year so with that comes new changes to Medicare reimbursement. Every time Medicare changes the billing, the average provider has a lot of research to do to make sure they are following all changes. The following articles from the American Physical Therapy Association and the American Occupational Therapy Association can help make heads or tails of the changes. Both provide links to more information.

One of the biggest changes is the use of non-payable G codes for outpatient clinics. Medicare is requiring therapy services to report functional limitations using these codes. The following links can better explain the use of G codes.
