CMS released the Physicians’ Fee Schedule proposed rule this evening. This rule describes payment and regulatory policy beginning in 2021. APTA has conducted an initial review and determined that the proposed cuts to therapy services have been maintained and despite an increase in the work valuation portion of the physical therapy evaluation and re-evaluation codes, reimbursement will be reduced by 9% beginning in 2021 for therapy services.
APTA continues to study the rule and has a strategy in place to continue to advocate for waiving budget neutrality and eliminating the proposed cuts.
