As of yesterday, all providers billing outpatient therapy services under Medicare Part B must begin or continue submitting functional limitation data (G-codes) for any Medicare beneficiary, or claims will be returned unpaid. Therapists must report functional limitation data on the beneficiaries' current functional status and the projected goal to Medicare at scheduled intervals throughout the episode of care, including at the outset of the therapy episode, no less frequently than every 10th visit, and at discharge.
APTA will host a Q&A call for members on Tuesday, July 9, 2:00 pm-3:00 pm ET, to answer questions about the reporting requirements. Space is limited. To register for a spot please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with "July 9 Call" in the subject line. Based on demand, we will host future calls throughout the month of July.
