For Immediate Release: 03/17/2022
TUALATIN, Ore. – Infinity Rehab, a therapy and rehabilitation services company offering physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech-language therapy, announced it is absorbing the 15% CMS therapy assistant cut announced late last year.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) finalized and implemented an updated Physician Fee Schedule (PFS), which included a 15% cut in reimbursement for services provided by therapy assistants in November 2021. This results in overall lower reimbursement from CMS to providers. The reduction became effective January 2, 2022.
Infinity Rehab proactively decided to absorb this 15% cut by making the necessary Part B assistant adjustments in our customer billing. This lowers the charges to our customers. Therapy assistants play an essential and valuable role in therapy care and services. This decision was important not only for Infinity Rehab customers but also for maintaining the quality of care needed for patients and residents.
“Even amidst these types of cuts, we stand by our customers and uphold our mission to set the standard in rehabilitation for successful aging by delivering the best of science with the art of caring,” stated JoLynn Munro, President. She continued: “One of our core values, a culture of trust and respect, is something we take to heart.”
