CMS Updates Webpage With Details of Extension of Therapy Caps Exceptions Process through CY 2017

Dan Ciolek

Recently, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) updated their Therapy Services web page regarding continuation of the Part B therapy cap exceptions process through December 31, 2017. When the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act was signed into law on April 16, 2015, the therapy caps exceptions process for Physical Therapy (PT), Occupational Therapy (OT), and Speech-Language Pathology (SLP) services was extended through CY 2017. This updated page also contains links to information related to medical review and the Manual Medical Review (MMR) process for Part B therapy claims over the $3700 annual per-beneficiary threshold.
