Pulmonary Rehabilitation

Effective January 1, 2010, the Centers for Medicare and Medicare services implemented the new Medicare comprehensive pulmonary rehabilitation program. These resource documents are provided to assist in answering your questions about coverage, coding and payment.

Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program Toolkit

The Pulmonary Rehabilitation Toolkit was designed to assist hospitals in setting the appropriate charge for G0424, the HCPCS code assigned to the PR benefit, in order to improve the payment rate for this valuable service. We encourage respiratory therapists to use this toolkit in their own PR programs.

Webcast on Pulmonary Reimbursement Reductions

This Members Only webcast titled “Strategies for Addressing the New Pulmonary Rehabilitation Reimbursement Reductions” was presented on March 28, 2012. It provides additional details on the information in the Toolkit and is key to helping respiratory therapists understand how they can help efforts to improve PR payment rates.
