Since 2018, inflation has risen by 22%. This means what took $1.00 to purchase an item in 2018 now takes $1.22 to purchase the same item in 2023. Unfortunately, insurance reimbursement has not risen 22% over the same 5-year period. In fact, taking into account inflation, you are actually being paid less in 2023 than you were in 2018, yet your expenses, especially health insurance, have increased drastically. For example, the Medicare conversion factor has decreased 9% since 2018.

Due to this inverse relationship, more and more physical therapists (PTs), occupational therapists (OTs), and speech-language pathologists (SLPs) have decided to either unenroll or not enroll with Medicare Advantage plans and commercial insurance carriers. This is known as being out-of-network (OON). However, many PTs, OTs and SLPs do not understand how to bill when they are out-of-network with an insurance plan.

This 1-hour webinar will teach participants the correct way to bill a patient for an outpatient therapy visit when the provider is not enrolled with the patient’s insurance carrier. In addition, the webinar will teach participants what they must still do each visit regarding documentation and billing even though they have no contractual relationship with the insurance carrier.
