Update: Medicare and Physical Therapy

Posted Oct 07 2008 7:19pm

One step closer to keeping the physical therapy exception cap and stopping the 10.6% reduction in the physician fee schedule. The Senate pass bill S3101 today by 69 - 30. The bill will now travel to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave and awaits our President to the sign the bill into law. The President does have 10 days to either sign or veto the bill. Lets hope the President will act swiftly to sign the bill into law. Remember tomorrow will be the last day before Medicare starts to process the claims under the existing law. Which means the cap is in effect and there will be a 10.6% reduction in fees.  It's in your court Mr. President.
