After adapting to several years of changes to Medicare payment rules, outpatient therapy providers won’t find much respite from tough financial and compliance challenges in 2021. Let’s start with the fact that CMS plans to reduce outpatient therapy reimbursements by 9% — and other payers are sure to follow. How do you budget for that? Complicating matters, you need to be planning for the 15% reduction in 2022 payments for services provided by physical therapy and outpatient therapy assistants.
There’s even more bad news: CMS has resumed post-payment review audits of claims submitted prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. Not surprisingly, the auditors are finding plenty of evidence that providers are confused about which rules are currently in effect.
Don’t despair, urges Nancy Beckley, presenter of this exclusive RACmonitor webcast. Instead, she says, fight back by clearly understanding and consistently complying with the latest rules and regulations. Nancy will walk you through strategies that support your organization’s efforts to compliantly bill for outpatient therapy services and capture every legitimate dollar of revenue in 2021.
