Friday, February 19, 2016 2016 MPPR Calculator Now Available The 2016 multiple procedure payment reduction (MPPR) calculator is now live on APTA's Medicare webpage. PTs must follow an MPPR policy that implements a 50% payment reduction to the practice expense value of certain "always therapy services" CPT codes. This year's calculator illustrates both the 50% reduction as well as the overall 2% cut to Medicare payments implemented through sequestration. The calculator, delivered by way of an Excel spreadsheet, calculates Medicare physician fee schedule payment for procedures provided to a beneficiary on a given day. The 2016 payment landscape: While the sustainable growth rate was repealed last year, the therapy cap for physical therapy and other services remains in place, and is scheduled to be revisited by Congress in 2017. APTA continues to advocate for elimination of the cap. Interested in joining those efforts? Sign up for PTeam.
