The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services released MedLearn (MLN) Matters 10176 on December 21, 2017 and is related to Change Request (CR) 10176. CR 10176 implements revised editing of Part B “Always Therapy” services to require the appropriate therapy modifier in order for the service to be accurately applied to the therapy cap. CR 10176 contains no new policy. Instead, the guidelines presented in the CR improve the enforcement of longstanding, existing instructions. Make sure your billing staffs are aware of these revisions.
