The Merit-based Incentive Payment System, or MIPS, is one tough cookie. It’s complicated and downright frustrating at times—but it’s something that rehab therapists need to be familiar with. If you’ve been looking for a no-nonsense, easy-to-follow MIPS explainer, then you’ve come to the right place! Just play the video to understand the basics behind this latest government program.
In our first webinar of 2017, WebPT’s co-founder and president, Heidi Jannenga, teamed up with CEO Nancy Ham to discuss the current and future healthcare trends that will impact PTs, OTs, and SLPs.

Here are answers to every question you’ve ever had about Medicare Part B for outpatient rehabilitation services.
If you have a physical therapy software that’s going out of business or is unreliable, then you face several problems as many regulatory changes hit.
After months of heated debate and public commentary—much of it coming from physicians who felt they needed more time to prepare themselves to participate in a brand-new quality reporting program—the Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) on Friday released its final rule on the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA).
