The Hospital Problem: Medicare Therapy Cap.
The 2012 annual beneficiary therapy cap amount is $1,880 for physical therapy. Medicare patients requiring rehabilitation for pre or post operative injuries or other chronic ailments would be limited to roughly two months worth of treatments at an outpatient therapy clinic. Patients who exceed the cap, whether they are healed or not, must either stop therapy or pay for continued services out of their own pocket. Because of the cap, there would be no way for them to receive the care they desperately need with their Medicare benefits. If they do not have other insurance options, many of these patients will simply not receive the care they need at all.
Currently, hospitals are struggling for a solution to the therapy cap problem. Additionally, the cap amount cannot “reset” for each patient diagnosis. How can hospitals connect with these patients for long-term successful outcomes?
