Medicare Therapy Services at Risk

EOY2011 Medicare Cap SAN Action Graphic

Medicare limits some rehab therapy services on an annual basis. Beneficiaries who need services above this capped amount can access that care through an exceptions process. However, that process will expire on February 29 unless Congress preserves it.

If the process expires, stroke survivors covered by Medicare who need additional therapy will have to forego it or pay for it out-of-pocket. Read more about this issue and how you can help preserve the exceptions process.
