Medicare Pulmonary Rehab FAQ Created
June 25, 2010
A list of frequently asked questions (FAQs) about the new Medicare pulmonary rehabilitation benefit that became effective at the beginning of the year is now available online for AARC members on the Government Affairs/Federal Affairs Issues page under the Outpatient Pulmonary Rehabilitation heading.
Most of the questions and answers have been received and dispersed through AARC’s Continuing Care Rehab Section email list over the past few months. A copy of the FAQs has been provided separately to members of the Rehab Specialty Section email list.
The FAQs also contain information that CMS posted recently in instructions to its Medicare contactors recently regarding updated information on coding and billing.
