04/15/2015 Senate passed H.R.2

Late tonight (April 14, 2015), the Senate voted on H.R. 2 to repeal and replace the flawed sustainable growth rate (SGR) formula that is used to determine payment for outpatient services under the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (MPFS, this includes outpatient therapy) and extend the outpatient therapy cap exception process that had expired on April 1, 2015. In addition, Senators Cardin (D-MD) and Vitter (R-LA) proposed an amendment to permanently repeal the Medicare outpatient therapy caps. Under agreement established by Senate leadership, the amendment required 60 votes to pass. This amendment would be voted on first by the Senate before taking a vote on a possible revised H.R. 2 bill.

The results of the amendment vote to completely repeal the Medicare outpatient therapy cap was 58-42, failing by just 2 votes. The Senate then voted on H.R. 2 and passed this legislation by a vote of 92-8. The bill will now be sent to President Obama who is expected to sign it.

So what does this legislation mean for providers of outpatient therapy services? The therapy cap exception process will continue until December 31, 2017 and will provide for a 0.5% increase in payment for services reimbursed under the MPFS instead of the 21.2% reduction that was to go in effect on April 1, 2015.

Under current law, electronic claims are not paid sooner than 14 calendar days (29 days for paper claims) after the date of receipt.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) have been holding claims with dates of service April 1, 2015 and after. On April 15, 2015, CMS is to begin paying claims with dates of service April 1, 2015 that were received on April 1, 2015. Due to the late passage of H.R. 2, we will have to wait to see if CMS holds these claims beyond the 14 calendar days to allow their systems to be updated with the 0.5% increase instead of the 21.2% reduction. As further information becomes available, this story will be updated.

06/17/2014 A focus on speech


Joyce E. Johns, MS / CCC SLP
Clinical Specialist for Rhode Island

Therapy Resources Management, LLC is an excellent place to complete a clinical fellowship year for new graduates. There is not another rehabilitation company who provides as much support to speech language pathologists as TRM does. The Vice President of Clinical Compliance is a seasoned SLP of 20 years. There is a SLP Clinical Specialist in RI with 24 years experience and one in MA with 9 years experience.

We treat in medically complex settings (i.e. vent and track) as well as subacute and long term care facilities. Working with adults in these settings is a great learning environment and experience because we get to work with our patients from their evaluations and throughout their course of treatment, unlike working in a hospital or outpatient setting where you see a patient either at the beginning or end of the course of therapy.

In many facilities, there are more than one speech language pathologists. Speech therapy is valued at TRM and is integral and essential to the rehab team, not an "as needed" service like in many other rehab companies.

We provide ongoing in servicing and education so that we can deliver high quality therapy to our patients. Most of our Clinical Fellows stay after their CFY is completed as they love their jobs and feel valued.
