Both organizations are asking for whatever help you can give.

NEWS

CMS Clarifies that Medicare Covers Maintenance Care
Isn’t it great when CMS is forced to cover services they should have been covering all along? A federal judge recently made Medicare clarify that they do cover skilled nursing, home health, and outpatient PT and OT, whether or not the services result in improvement in a patient’s condition. Therapy to keep you healthy instead of waiting for function and health to decline? Brilliant.
