MHI – Q: Did you know about the Medicare therapy caps on outpatient physical, occupational and speech ther

Posted by MedEd at MHI
A: Say goodbye to physical, occupational and speech therapy caps on Medicare services. Until President Trump signed the budget deal in February, people on Medicare were subject to arbitrary limits on the amount of therapy services that Medicare was willing to pay.  

Last year, Medicare stopped paying for occupational therapy when the total of what you paid (20%) and the amount Medicare paid (80%) equaled $1,980. Under the new law, they’ll be no such limit as long as your doctor confirms the need for therapy services. This change will help those with conditions such as Parkinson’s disease and MS remain in their own homes rather than going to a long term care facility.
