 CMS Has Changed PT/OT Coding for 2020: Are You Ready?


In order to improve clinical documentation and maximize reimbursements for your practice, it is essential that you know the latest revisions and changes to the physical therapy CPT® codes for FY 2020.

Join this session, where our expert speaker Lynn M. Anderanin, will go in-depth with the changes to physical therapy CPT® codes for FY 2020 and billing therapy services for Medicare patients that have met their annual threshold. Understand the methods of reporting these services for maximum reimbursement. Realize the incident to guidelines to avoid non-compliance. You’ll also get the tips and strategies to avoid denials and get maximum reimbursements from Medicare as well as private insurance companies.

After attending this session, you will have a thorough understanding of PT/OT coding. You will know who can document and perform physical therapy/occupational therapy to Medicare patients; whether you still need to report the functional HCPCS codes and severity modifiers; what your PTAs/OTAs can do; what you can bill; and when the new modifiers take effect. Plus, you will be armed with the insight to strengthen your therapy departments and maximize your reimbursement legally and ethically.
