    An AHCA/NASL sponsored event

    The Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012 extended the therapy cap exceptions process until December 31, 2012. The law also placed a $3,700 limit on the amount of therapy that could be provided without pre-authorization. Starting on October 1, providers must seek pre-authorization for patients needing therapy over and above the $3,700 threshold. Around Labor Day, CMS began to detail how the agency will implement this new policy, which is being phased in from October 1 to December 1, 2012.



    Learning Objectives

    1. Understand the components of the new manual medical review process CMS requires under the Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012.
    2. Gain insight about the specific patient information and documentation MACs will require when providers submit pre-authorization requests that are needed for Medicare reimbursement for additional therapy for those patients near the $3,700 threshold.
    3. Understand the steps that providers will need to take when requesting pre-authorization.
    4. Obtain links to all CMS issued guidance and documents regarding this new policy
