Payers—especially Medicare—have dealt PTs, OTs, and SLPs a lot of blows over the years. Their latest one-two punch? A 3.6% payment reduction in addition to the 15% cut to reimbursement rates for PTA and OTA services beginning in 2022. And as any rehab therapist can tell you, payment rates weren’t all that great to begin with. Add that to the lingering financial distress of the pandemic, and it certainly seems like the rehab therapy community is punching above their weight.
But, these cuts don’t have to be rehab’s KO. In fact, clinics that are willing to adapt have an opportunity to shift the trajectory of the entire industry in a direction that’s good for everyone—including patients. That’s where we come in.
