Medicare making you shout and scream?
Then join our expert compliance team!
We’ll answer all your toughest Q’s.
Because you’ve gotta know the rules, or you’re bound to lose!

If receiving accurate reimbursements were a game, Medicare would certainly be one of the toughest opponents—and that’s especially true for rehab therapists. After all, the rules are constantly changing, and it seems like Medicare is always trying to sneak in a trick play to prevent PTs, OTs, and SLPs from receiving the reimbursements they deserve. But, with the right strategy—and some spirited support from our compliance squad—you can tip the score in your favor.

With that in mind, we invite you to join us for a live question-and-answer-style webinar on Tuesday, October 23, at 9:00 AM PDT / 12:00 PM EDT. During this session, Dr. Heidi Jannenga, PT, DPT, ATC, WebPT President and Co-Founder, and special guest host Rick Gawenda, PT, President and CEO of Gawenda Seminars & Consulting, will:

  • Provide a quick rundown of common Medicare misconceptions;
  • Answer as many live audience questions as time allows; and
  • Compile the rest into a post-webinar FAQ blog article.

So, collect your biggest Medicare brainbusters, and register for this can’t-miss event.

Can’t make the live session? Register anyway to receive the recording and handout—and to have an opportunity to ask us your question via email.

    Common Questions from Our New PT and OT Evaluation Codes Webinar

    This month’s webinar on the new CPT codes was our biggest one yet—more than 11,000 people registered to attend. With such a large—and clinically diverse—audience, we received a ton of questions. And due to time constraints, our hosts—WebPT’s own Heidi Jannenga and compliance expert Rick Gawenda—weren’t able to get to even a fraction of them during the live broadcast. Not to worry, though; we’ve done our best to answer them all here, in one giant FAQ article. …

    Unwrapping MIPS and the Final Rule: How to Prepare for 2019

    Picture this: snowflakes drift lazily through the bitter winter air and pile softly on your windowsill. You’re snuggled up under your softest blanket, holding a steaming cup of cocoa and smiling as your family laughs and chatters happily after tearing open their holiday gifts. Then, someone hands you a box wrapped in shiny blue paper with a tag that reads, “From Medicare.” You rip into the bright wrapping paper, but as it falls to the floor, you …

    Founder Letter: My Evaluation of the New PT and OT Eval Codes

    Over the last several years, healthcare providers in general—and rehab therapists, specifically—have been hit with a seemingly constant barrage of regulatory requirements. And the vast majority of these initiatives—PQRS, functional limitation reporting, MPPR, ICD-10, and the like—have either: Had a direct negative impact on our payments, or Forced us to devote extra time to satisfying the criteria of the requirements—with zero compensation for that time. So, it should come as no surprise that the rehab therapy community …

    Fact or Fiction? The Ultimate Medicare Myth [Quiz]

    You’ve heard the adage that fact can be stranger than fiction, right? After all, fiction has to make sense. Well, when it comes to Medicare rules, neither fact nor fiction makes much sense—at least not on first pass. But, all rehab therapists who work with Medicare patients must be able to tell the difference—if they want to remain compliant and get paid, that is. To help you put your Medicare knowledge to the test, we’ve put together …

    CMS’s Final Bow: The 2019 Final Rule

    Last week, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) published its 2019 final rule . Clocking in at just over 2,300 pages, the final rule isn't exactly a light read—especially because the legal lingo can be harder to interpret than Shakespearean verse. Luckily, we have the script—with all its twists and turns—decoded and ready for you to review. Here's the synopsis of all the physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech-language pathology Medicare changes for 2019: Out, …

    CPT Update: Why the Valuation of the New PT and OT Eval Codes is Problematic

    The purpose of any type of reform is to drive change. And that’s certainly true when it comes to healthcare—and healthcare payment—reform. But, change often comes slowly—and in the wake of Medicare’s recently issued proposed physician fee schedule for 2017 , I have to wonder whether it’ll come too slowly for physical and occupational therapists. That’s because, while the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) voiced its support for replacing the existing CPT codes for physical …

    Physical Therapy Billing Open Forum

    It’s a bird; it’s a plane; it’s—a physical therapy billing expert? 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 …
