Billing Blunder Blues got you down? Let our RCM experts mend your broken heart.

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. Whether it’s a payer that suddenly denies a claim (even though you’ve submitted similar ones a thousand times before without issue) or confusion over which CPT code to select for patient education, a whole lotta problems can arise. And sometimes, there’s no clear path to correcting them. Fortunately, WebPT’s RCM gurus are no hound dogs, and they’re ready to tackle your biggest billing quandaries.

If coding errors, claim denials, modifier mix-ups, or any other billing-related headaches are giving you the blues, skip the heartbreak hotel and let our panel of billing experts answer your toughest questions.

Join our PT billing experts for a live Q&A-style webinar at 9:00 AM PDT / 12:00 PM EDT on Thursday, August 29. During this session, hosts Dr. Heidi Jannenga, PT, DPT, ATC, WebPT President and Co-Founder, and John Wallace, PT, MS, WebPT Chief Business Development Officer of Revenue Cycle Management, will provide a brief overview of physical therapy billing best practices before tackling as many live audience questions as time allows.

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 …

    6 Biggest Factors Impacting Your PT Clinic’s Cash Flow

    The 8-Minute Rule Showdown: Medicare vs. AMA

    The guidelines for using the 8-Minute Rule are kind of like the instructions for building a piece of furniture from IKEA: they appear simple at first, but before you know it, you’ve been struggling for hours, you’ve got a lopsided futon, and there are seven leftover screws of various shapes and sizes scattered around your living room floor (maybe they’re just extras, right?). To make matters even more confusing, not all payers adhere to the same set …
