Happy New Year from Therapy and Recovery at Wesley Towers!
Some of the most frequent questions and the most confusing aspects of Medicare Part B services is "How much do I have?" "How long is this benefit good for?" "What does Medicare Part B cover?" We know that Medicare can be very confusing and difficult to understand what benefits are covered, so hopefully this article will help.
Medicare Part B services are utilized for outpatient related services, such as Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapy. It does not matter where these services are delivered, whether in a private outpatient clinic, a hospital or in a long-term care facility, as long as they are billed as Medicare Part B.
When Therapeutic services are provided, Medicare Part B will pay for (approximately) 80% of the services provided. There will be a remaining (approximately) 20% of the balance remaining, which can be picked up one of two ways. Either a secondary insurance, if available, or private pay. When you come to Therapy and Recovery at Wesley Towers, we will check your available benefits prior to treating you properly to determine if you have Medicare Part B, a secondary insurance, or if you will be responsible for any costs. We want to help you any way we can to assure you get the benefits and the help you need.
If you have a Medicare part b plan, then you are entitled to $3,000 each year. A breakdown of how the money is divided is as follows:
