An accurate understanding of the coding and billing process is critical for rehab professionals. 2018 Coding & Billing for Physical & Occupational Therapy covers the correct use of CPT codes for modalities and interventions used by physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants in all outpatient settings including private practice, hospital-based outpatient departments, rehabilitation agencies, comprehensive outpatient rehabilitation facilities, skilled nursing facilities doing Part B and in a patient’s home. This webinar will discuss the new and revised 2018 CPT codes for orthotic and prosthetic management and training as well as discuss the new CPT code for cognitive function. The course will review Medicare’s 8-minute rule and the definition of substantial of time-based CPT codes per the American Medical Association (AMA) in order to bill correctly to insurance carriers who do not adhere to Medicare’s 8-minute rule.
