An accurate understanding of the coding and billing process is critical for rehab professionals. 2020 Coding & Billing for Physical & Occupational Therapy covers the correct use of CPT codes for evaluations, reevaluations, 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 home health agencies doing Part B in a patient’s home. This webinar will discuss the new 2020 CPT codes for dry needling, biofeedback and cognitive function interventions. 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. Billing scenarios are discussed and reviewed to ensure therapists can accurately charge patients correctly for their services not only to the Medicare program, but also to non-Medicare insurance carriers.
At the completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Describe & understand how to select the correct CPT code(s) based on the intervention(s) provided
- Recognize which CPT codes are service-based and which are time-based for billing purposes
- Explain the deleted and new CPT codes regarding dry needling, biofeedback, and cognitive function interventions for 2020
- Differentiate between one-on-one interventions and group therapy
- Understand who can bill L codes to Medicare and what is included in the L code payment for orthotics
- Describe and understand Medicare’s “8-Minute Rule” to bill correctly and ensure correct reimbursement
- Define “each 15-minutes” and what is a substantial portion for non-Medicare insurance companies that do not apply Medicare’s “8-minute rule” (i.e. follow AMA guidelines)
- Be able to charge correctly for the services you provide under outpatient therapy benefits for Medicare and non-Medicare insurance carriers
