Therapy on Center Stage

AHCA is actively engaged with its members to find solutions to therapy issues affecting them and the beneficiaries they serve. AHCA’s analysis and specific recommendations on the 2014 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule Proposed Rule, prepared in concert with its Therapy Policy Advisory Group and other member suggestions, were recently submitted to CMS and can be read here. A number of Medicare Part B therapy issues were addressed, including the therapy caps and exceptions process, the therapy manual medical review (MMR) process, multiple procedure payment reduction (MPPR) edits, and issues related to developing an alternative Part B therapy payment system.  Two non-therapy issues were also addressed: 

  1. Complex Chronic Care Management Services, and
  2. Tele-health Services.
