Therapy Evaluations Not Paid in Emergency Department
Over the past 2 weeks, I have been receiving emails from hospital therapy directors and billing departments stating they are no longer being paid for a physical therapy or occupational therapy evaluation or reevaluation when performed on a Medicare beneficiary who presents to their emergency department. In this article, I will explain why this is occurring. Effective with dates of service on and after I hope you found this article informative and helpful. Thank you for being a Gold Member!
