  • Members-Only Webinar Will Focus on Demonstrating Value in New Home Health Payment System

    Physical therapists (PTs) and other providers who furnish services through home health agencies that bill Medicare will face an entirely new payment system beginning in January, 2020—one in which demonstrating the value of a particular intervention will be key. A new multidisciplinary webinar that includes experts from the US Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) can help you prepare for the shift.

    APTA has joined with the American Occupational Therapy Association, the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and CMS to offer a free members-only live webinar on how therapy providers can best navigate the new Medicare Patient-Driven Groupings Model planned to go into effect January 1, 2020. The collaborative presentation is set for August 5 at 2:00 pm ET. Advanced registration is required.

    A recording of the webinar will be made available at later date. For more information on the presentation, contact advocacy@apta.org.
