CY 2023 Therapy Services Updates

Mary Madison, RN, RAC-CT, CDP

The Therapy Services webpage is being updated to:

  • Reflect the KX modifier threshold amounts for CY 2023 in the “Implementation of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018” section on the landing page. There’s a lot of information in this section of that landing page.
  • Update the CY 2023 list of codes that sometimes or always describe therapy services.  While there are no new CPT/HCPCS codes to add or delete, we are updating Disposition 10 to clarify that, for RTM services, physical and occupational therapists in private practice must continue to provide direct supervision of their therapy assistants for CY 2023 in keeping with the regulatory provisions that require direct supervision for all services they don’t personally furnish.  Otherwise, the CY 2023 Therapy Code List is identical to that of CY 2022.  See the Annual Therapy Update link for the 2023 Therapy Code List and Dispositions.
  • Removing the statement on and the link to the Beneficiary Fact Sheet on Medicare Limits on Therapy Services as this information is obsolete and no longer needed due to the BBA of 2018 that repealed the application of the financial limitations, otherwise known as the “therapy caps.”   August 2018 ABN FAQs
