CMS to Hold Open Door Forum on Medical Review of Therapy Claims

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services will hold a Special Open Door Forum on the Manual Medical Review of Therapy Claims on September 5, 2012, from 2:00pm-3:30pm ET. The purpose of this forum is to provide an opportunity for providers to ask questions about the mandated manual medical review of therapy services from October 1-December 31, 2012 for Medicare Part B services that was enacted by the Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012.

CMS will discuss therapy documentation requirements. CMS requests providers’ participation who order or provide therapy services nationally. The therapy cap applies to all Part B outpatient therapy settings and providers including home health agencies.
