  • New Webinar: Reporting Functional Limitations on Claim Forms

    Beginning January 1, 2013, outpatient therapy providers will need to report information about their Medicare patient’s functional limitations on the claim form. This reporting requirement will apply to outpatient physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech language pathology services provided in hospitals, critical access hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, comprehensive outpatient rehabilitation facilities (CORFs), rehabilitation agencies, home health agencies (when the beneficiary is not under a home health plan of care), and in private offices of therapists, physicians and nonphysician practitioners. A new APTA webinar recording provides information regarding the new functional limitation reporting as you implement the requirement in your practice. Specific information is provided on which new codes to report, documentation, and claims submission. The video can be found on the Functional Limitation Reporting Under Medicare webpage under General Information.

    • Please give me some insight on how this affects patients being seen for wound care in out-pt clinics. I would like to pass this on to all the members of our Wound Care SIG asap, and not sure what to tell them. Thanks so much for your help.
