Therapy Coding and Billing Changes – Are You Ready?

 

Beginning January 1, 2017, the existing physical and occupational therapy evaluation and re-evaluation CPT codes will no longer be accepted by Medicare for Part B services, and 6 new codes will be required in their place.  To prevent interruptions in your cash flow due to claims denials, it is important that your key staff know the new billing codes, that software and process are modified to handle the new codes and that therapy services are properly documented to support the new codes.

 

This presentation, for facility management and billing staff, will explain the changes in the CPT codes and the new documentation requirements that must support the new codes.  It will also review steps you should be taking now to prepare for this change, and steps you should be talking after January to ensure the therapy billing that is done is compliant with these new requirements. 

 

Speaker

Catherine Gill, MS, PT, MHA is a Director at LW Consulting, Inc., a specialty healthcare consulting firm.  She has over 30 years’ experience in post-acute care, focused on clinical practice development, regulatory compliance and process improvement.  She previously led the nursing home quality improvement initiatives for Primaris throughout the state of Missouri.
