Proposed Reimbursement Reduction for Outpatient Physical Therapy Services

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has proposed a 15% reduction in reimbursement for outpatient physical therapy services when services are provided in whole or in part by PTA's. In 2022, payment for outpatient therapy services furnished in whole or in part by a PTA or OTA will be reimbursed at 85% of the fee schedule.
