Winter Edition - Vol. 14 No. 1
CMS has issued a directive, which went into effect on January 1, 2018, requiring that all outpatient physical therapy services be appended with the GP modifier. This modifier, along with GN for speech-language pathology and GO for occupational therapy are used to allow Medicare to track utilization of these types of services.
The Medicare Part B deductible for 2018 will be $183. There is no change from 2017. The 2018 Medicare fee schedule has been released. The base fee schedule for chiropractic services through Medicare has gone up approximately 1% each for the allowed chiropractic procedures (98940-98942).
On behalf of the Chimicles & Tikellis law firm: Chimicles & Tikellis LLP is investigating whether Cigna is overcharging insureds being treated by physical and occupational therapists (PT/OT) in ASH’s network.
