CMS Changes Harm OT

The Occupational Therapy profession is facing payment pressure from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). CMS is attempting to adjust Medicare Part B by reducing fee schedule payment for codes tied to occupational therapy. These reductions, planned for 2021, could result in an estimated 8% - possibly 9+% decrease in payment. These reductions not only impact Medicare payment but are also often the basis for commercial insurers fee schedules.  We are joining AOTA, ASHA, WPTA and APTA, among other therapy groups, to advocate against these changes. We encourage you to write your representatives, and help us ensure a fair payment model. More information is linked here.
