Blog Therapy Caps Repeal Included in Bipartisan Budget Act

On Feb. 9, 2018, after some delays and political wrangling, the Senate approved the two year budget deal that had been agreed upon by Senate Leadership.  The Bill was immediately returned to the House that had previously passed their version Wednesday, Feb. 7.  The House then passed the Bill, and it was signed Feb. 9 by the President.  The measure increases discretionary spending caps imposed for FY 2018 and FY 2019, extends continuing appropriations funding the federal government until March 23, 2018, suspends the public debt limit until March 1, 2019, and includes other funding and policy provisions.

Blog End of Year Therapy Caps Update

At the end of 2017, we had hoped that there would be a vehicle for Congress to address the issue of the expiring Therapy Caps exceptions process.  But following the flurry of legislative activity the last couple weeks in December, Congress adjourned for 2017 and did not enact legislation to address what is often referred to as Medicare “extender payment policies.” These policies expired on Dec. 31, 2017 and include the Part B therapy cap exception process. This means that effective Jan. 1, 2018, Medicare Part B providers are operating under prior therapy caps without any exceptions based on patient need. We believe that it is highly likely Congress will fix this issue when they return this month and our hope is that they will fix it by the time they must address the current Continuing Resolution (extending government funding) that expires on Jan. 19.
