Outpatient Therapy Reimbursement for Wheelchair Services
Outpatient Therapy Reimbursement for Wheelchair Services will outline for participants available CPT codes that can be used when providing wheelchair specific evaluation and follow-up services. The course will discuss documentation requirements for coverage of the available codes, provide a quick reference guide, overview modifiers used, and discuss potential limitations of services in the outpatient setting. With rapidly changing regulations for coverage of services in the outpatient setting, a brief overview of current changes and their potential impact to access to services by beneficiaries in an outpatient setting will be provided.
