It’s that time of year again …
No, I’m not talking about the holidays. This time of year means, once again, it is Therapy Cap Repeal discussion time.
Currently, we should understand Medicare Part B through the lens of Section 202 of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA). That extended the therapy caps exceptions process through December 31, 2017 and modified the requirement for manual medical review for services over the $3,700 therapy thresholds. Under Medicare Part B, the annual limitations on per beneficiary incurred expenses for outpatient therapy services are commonly referred to as “therapy caps.”
