Legends tell of a great beast who lurks in the depths of CMS’s darkest dungeon. Many adventurers have set out to conquer this mighty leviathan, only to find themselves outmatched, outnumbered, and eventually, defeated. But now, the time has come for a hero to emerge and subdue this prodigious beast once and for all.

That beast is Medicare. And the hero? That’s you.

With the right knowledge and skillset, you and your party (er, clinic staff) can overcome any obstacles the Medicare monster throws your way—from choosing the right modifiers to billing for maintenance care.

Should you accept this challenge, you don’t have to go it alone—WebPT is here to help. Join our compliance experts for this can’t-miss webinar at 9:00 AM PDT / 12:00 PM EDT on Tuesday, October 15. During this session, hosts Dr. Heidi Jannenga, PT, DPT, ATC, WebPT President and Co-Founder, and Veda Collmer, JD, OTR, WebPT’s Chief Compliance Officer, will guide you through the murkiest muck and most treacherous terrain of seven common Medicare mistakes.

During the webinar, our hosts will: 

  • Provide tactics for preventing rejections;
  • Clarify when it’s acceptable to bill for maintenance therapy;
  • Demonstrate proper Medicare documentation; and
  • Cover proper modifier use.

Anyone who’s worked on the revenue cycle management (RCM) side of rehab therapy knows how complicated things can get—it’s enough to make a ramblin’ man lose his mind.

If you’re a physical therapy practice owner, manager, or biller, then you’ve probably wished for a billing superhero at one point or another. After all, while the PT billing process seems fairly simple on paper—therapists provide services, submit the CPT codes for those services, and receive payment—any seasoned pro knows it’s anything but. Rejections, denials, and reimbursement delays are more common than any of us would …

    You’ve probably heard the saying, “Don’t hate the player; hate the game.” It’s a go-to hip-hop lyric, but its relevance isn’t limited to rap artists. The same holds true when it comes to insurance companies. Sure, payment rates for physical therapy services are on the decline, but the payer isn’t necessarily the problem.
