  • CMS To Host Conference Call on 'Improved Standard' Agreement

    Physical therapists (PTs) can get the latest information on how the Jimmo v. Sibelius settlement agreement reached in US District Court will affect the services they provide under Medicare by joining in on a December 19 Medicare Learning Network conference call. Registration is open now, but spaces are likely to fill up quickly.

    The agreement reached in January reinforces Medicare's policy that when skilled services are required to provide care to slow or prevent further deterioration, coverage cannot be denied because of the lack of potential for improvement. The agreement has particular relevance to home health agencies, skilled nursing facilities, inpatient rehabilitation facilities, and outpatient physical therapy providers.

    The call will be held from 2:00 pm-3:00 pm, ET. Participation is limited, and continuing education credits may be available. To register, visit the MLN Connects Upcoming Calls webpage.
