Will New Concurrent Therapy Medicare Regulation Impact Your Practice?

If you ever provide physical therapy to more than two patients at a time, there are new Medicare regulations on concurrent therapy you should be aware of. Luis Montes, DPT, MBA, Director of Business Development at Accelerated Care Plus shares his insight in today’s podcast on ways the new regulations may impact your practice.

Currently, Medicare Part A covers concurrent physical therapy for patients and leaves it up to physical therapist’s to determine the number of patients they can effectively see at the same time. The new Medicare Part A slated for release in October 2010 will only cover concurrent physical therapy for up to two patients at a time. Medicare Part B currently outlaws concurrent therapy and is not directly impacted by this change in regulation.

Listen now to find out how you can prepare for these new changes in Medicare regulation.
