  1. This information is interesting but not helpful in practice without separating these into each discipline. One of Medicare’s criteria for auditing a clinic is “abnormal billing patterns.” How are we suppose to know what abnormal is if we don’t know this data by discipline?

  2. Thanks for commenting Rick. states, “MACs use data analysis to identify: … unusual billing practices…” Part of our compliance duty is to assess if we have “usual billing practices.”

    Do have a recommendation to help us determine how our billing practices compare to whatever Medicare considers “Usual?”


    1. My advice is to make sure your documentation supports the CPT code(s) billed, the frequency and duration of therapy services and that the services had to be provided by a therapist or an assistant under the direction and supervision of a therapist.
