Late last year, Congress approved a new omnibus and COVID-19 relief package that reduced the magnitude of the cuts for therapy in 2021. While the December announcement appeared to soften the blow, the reality is that the reductions will still have a lasting impact to therapy practices already struggling with the pandemic, leaving many to wonder what’s next.
During this recorded webinar, presented in partnership with APTQI, Nikesh Patel, PT, DPT, Executive Director at APTQI, examines the specific details of the payment adjustment, as well as the impact that the reduced cuts will have on various aspects of fee schedule and components of care. Nikesh also discusses actionable items for organizations going forward, including the importance of continued advocacy for additional relief in 2021, as well as to prevent further cuts from being enacted in 2022.
