The Home Health Section alerted APTA this week that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) began issuing its therapy cap letter to Medicare beneficiaries who are receiving home health under Part A, resulting in patients cancelling appointments. To address these beneficiaries' concerns, APTA has updated its patient FAQs to explicitly state that the cap does not apply to patients who receive skilled therapy at home under the Medicare home health benefit Part A, those who receive services under Part A in skilled nursing facilities, or those under a Part A inpatient hospital stay.
