155Re: [physical_therapists_in_business] Question on Medicare therapy cap
- Jun 12, 2003Answers:
1. Patients that are currently on caseload will begein
their therapy cap on July 1st. You need to track the
amount of money used starting July 1st only.
2. If the patients that are currently on caseload
continues to July 1st, you have 2 options, you can
either d/c them on June 30th and do a Eval/Re-eval on
July 1st, or you can just continue treatments without
doing a d/c or an eval/re-eval of the patients, but on
both option you need to track the amount of money
Hope this helps.
