Medicare updates reimbursement criteria for “maintenance” therapy services

ReimbursementA Qui­et “Sea Change” in Medicare (The New York Times):

In Jan­u­ary, Medicare offi­cials updat­ed the agency’s pol­i­cy man­u­al –the rule book for every­thing Medicare does– to erase any notion that improve­ment is nec­es­sary to receive cov­er­age for skilled care. That means Medicare will now pay for phys­i­cal ther­a­py, nurs­ing care and oth­er ser­vices for ben­e­fi­cia­ries with chron­ic dis­eases like mul­ti­ple scle­ro­sis, Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s dis­ease in order to main­tain their con­di­tion and pre­vent dete­ri­o­ra­tion.”
