Hard Cap on Physical Therapy Services under MEDICARE Eliminated

On February 9, 2018, Congress eliminated the hard cap of $2010.00 annually on physical therapy services. What this means is that in a calendar year, Medicare recipients can exceed this amount for PT services as long as the services are medically necessary and the patient shows improvement. If and when the amount reaches $3,000.00, then those claims will be placed in a pool for arbitrary medical review.
