Physical Therapy Billing

Physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy are all covered in this book designed to inform the therapist of all the necessary things they need to know for successful reimbursement of their medical insurance claims for services rendered to their patients when submitting physical therapy billing.

Over the years we have had many questions from people billing for therapy services and not quite understanding the whole process.  We've put together this book in easy to understand language to help both the therapist and the biller to understand the whole billing process.

Some of the things we cover:
  • 7 things a therapist needs but might have missed in school
  • 5 Common reasons therapy claims are denied
  • How to avoid the pitfalls with proper preparation
  • Steer clear of fraud
  • Using modifiers
  • taxonomy codes, npi numbers, PTANs and other numbers
  • modalities
  • secondary and tertiary claims
  • and much more
    Physical Therapy billing is done on red and white CMS 1500 forms.  These forms must be completed in black ink as many insurance companies scan the forms.  Some companies require that the claim forms are typed or generated from a computer if not sent electronically.  Here is more information on completing these forms correctly . If the forms are not completed correctly, they most likely will be denied payment. Here is some information on physical therapy CPT codes.

    When you run into questions with physical therapy billing, you can often find the answers you need at our medical billing forum. If someone hasn't already asked your question, you can post it yourself and get notified when anyone posts answers to your questions.  You can sign up to access our medical billing forum here.

    Quite often as the practice grows, the provider finds that the income is not keeping up with the growth of the business.   He or she is seeing more and more patients and not bringing in as much income as should be coming in for the number of patients seen.

    The problem with this is that as the practice grows, it becomes more difficult to keep up with all the required tasks of authorizations, referrals and insurance billing.  It takes time to check to make sure he or she is getting paid for all the visits and to deal with the problems that arise with insurance billing. It is not unusual to be on the telephone for 40 minutes or longer trying to straighten out an insurance issue when you are doing insurance billing. 

    If you want to make sure you are getting paid for all your visits, you must have good systems in place. You need a system for billing out all your insurance and patient bills, a system for tracking them, and the time to take care of all this.  For more information on setting up good systems that work, check out our new book Physical Therapy Billing.
