If you’ve been paying attention to our blog posts, our webinars, and functionallimitation.org for the past few weeks, you might think we here at WebPT have gone a little FLR-crazy. And you’d be right. You see, the latest CMS regulation—functional limitation reporting (FLR)—has some pretty severe consequences for noncompliance. Namely, if you don’t comply, you don’t get paid. I don’t know about you, but that seems like an awful lot of pressure. So, we’ve set out to give you all the information and tools you need (including a fully integrated functional limitation reporting solution available within WebPT after May 17) to become an FLR Master. This way, in addition to supreme bragging rights as a result of your mastery, you’ll also get paid. We think that’s kind of a big deal.
With that in mind, here’s a flowchart that walks you through FLR in theory. Essentially, this is everything you’ll need to consider if you’re doing FLR on your own. Holy steps, Batman!
Following this chart is a nifty FLR in WebPT SmartArt graphic. Notice the difference? You don’t have have to be an FLR Master to see that WebPT’s integrated functional limitation reporting solution (coming May 17) is going to make FLR easy peasy.

See what I mean? And if this doesn’t look simple enough, consider this: You’ll never have to worry about whether or not your patient is FLR-eligible or on a qualifying visit—we’ll figure that out for you and prompt you to complete your note appropriately. Plus, if you forget a step (maybe skip over selecting a modifier), we’ll send you an alert that prevents you from finalizing your note. Think of WebPT’s fully integrated functional limitation reporting solution as your FLR easy button. We’ve got you covered—and that means you get paid.
