Billing for physical therapy services is tricky, time-consuming, and riddled with ever-evolving rules—which means mistakes are bound to happen. But how many mistakes are you truly making? The occasional oops is one thing, but what if you’re unknowingly flubbing up left and right? That’s a scary thought. Even scarier: you could be flubbing on purpose, because “everyone’s doing it.”
Whether accidental or intentional, actions have consequences, and when it comes to billing for the services you provide, there isn’t a whole lot of room for repentance.
