September 7, 2016: Concerned for its members, the physical therapy profession, and the patients and clients served, APTA expressed “deep disappointment” this week that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) failed to adopt different payment values to correspond with 3 levels of physical therapy evaluation that the agency did adopt as new CPT codes in its proposed Medicare physician fee schedule for 2017. The association submitted formal comments to CMS on September 6, continuing its efforts on behalf of members toward the most meaningful and beneficial payment reforms.
