  • CMS Clarifies Functional Limitation Reporting Requirements

    The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) clarified various elements of functional limitation reporting in its July 24, 2013, edition of MLN Matters.

    The article includes definitions of a "reporting episode" and a "reporting period" for the purposes of functional limitation reporting, details the importance of submitting claims in sequence, and provides further clarity on unique reporting scenarios that include multiple plans of care.

    The MLN Matters article is among the many resources that can be accessed at APTA's functional limitation reporting webpage, which includes a downloadable toolkit, multiple case scenarios, and FAQs.

    The reporting of functional limitation data is required for therapy services claims under Medicare Part B for dates of service on or after July 1, 2013.


    • I can't access the functional limitation toolkit because it says it is available to members only. But I am a member. Why can't I access this information? I am logged in and my renewal date isn't until January 2014.
