    'Insider Intel' Covers Fee Schedule, SNFs, Outpatient Payment, More

    While the proposed rule for the 2018 Medicare physician fee schedule may have grabbed the attention of physical therapists (PTs) for taking a light touch to potentially "misvalued" current procedural terminology (CPT) codes, there's more to the proposed rule than that. And there's a host of other actions from the US Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) that PTs need to know about as well. Are you up on all the changes?

    "Insider Intel" to the rescue.

    Now available: a free recording of the latest Insider Intel session, the call-in program that provides APTA members with the latest on payment and regulatory issues. The July 19 program covers a very active period for CMS by diving into not only the fee schedule but also news related to skilled nursing facilities, home health, hospital outpatient payment, and the status of a controversial CMS plan for prosthetics and orthotics.

    The recorded session, hosted by APTA regulatory affairs staff, includes a question-and-answer session with attendees.
