    CMS Revises Medicare Benefit Policy Manual

    The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has revised the Medicare Benefit Policy Manual to include a change to the progress note requirement, which now is required at either a date chosen by the clinician or the 10th treatment day, whichever is shorter. Additionally, there is a new section dedicated the functional limitation reporting requirements that were implemented on January 1. Therapists are required to include functional limitation reporting information in their documentation. The functional impairments identified and expressed in the long-term treatment goals must be consistent with those used in the claims-based functional reporting using nonpayable G-codes and severity modifiers for services furnished on or after January 1. For more information, visit APTA's functional limitation reporting webpage.
