In the coming weeks, CMS will start rolling out new Medicare numbers for each beneficiary. If you provide physical therapy services to Medicare patients, below are the top 5 things you should know.
So in conclusion, we recommend that all physical therapy providers start requesting a copy of the most recent Medicare card issued to their patients anytime they are treated after April 1 st. While it is not imperative to collect and update this information for another year and half, it will make the hard cutoff date much easier if the legwork of collecting the new numbers is done in a proactive manner.
StrataPT will have all systems in place to support and validate both the old and new number during the transitional period. We will also continue to provide our physical therapy billing customers with real-time Medicare eligibility verifications for each Medicare beneficiary using both the old and new numbers.
We would love to talk to you and schedule a demo to see how we may be able to improve your billing operations (and your bottom line!) Please complete the form below to get started.
