  • APTA Launches Functional Limitation Reporting Webpage

    APTA has launched a webpage with background information and resources, including a comprehensive FAQ document, to help physical therapists meet a new functional limitation reporting requirement. 

    The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) will begin to collect information via claim forms on January 1, 2013, regarding the beneficiary's function and condition, therapy services furnished, and outcomes achieved. To ensure a smooth transition, CMS sets forth a testing period from January 1, 2013, until July 1, 2013. After July 1, 2013, claims submitted without the appropriate G-codes and modifiers will be returned unpaid.

    Additional resources will be added to the webpage in the coming months. Check back soon for a webinar update on Medicare 2013, podcasts on functional limitation reporting and case examples, and more.
