Medicare - How Does Original Medicare Cover Skilled Therapy?

In my opinion, this’s "Dear Marci” internet post had a very good explanation regarding what Original Medicare covers for skilled therapy. So I thought I’d share their web link below.

Note: If you have a "Medicare Advantage" plan, your coverage and costs are specific to your own plan and can vary from one Medicare Advantage plan to another. Medicare Advantage plan coverages and costs are generally not the same as Original Medicare alone. 

Previously there was a maximum limit on how much was covered for skilled therapy under Original Medicare. However, did you know that starting in 2018 the therapy cap (maximum allowed to be paid) was removed? Starting in 2018, although once your therapy costs reach a certain amount, Medicare will require your provider to confirm that your therapy is medically necessary.

Note: Medicare Insurance information can be overwhelming and confusing to many people. As an independent licensed agent I can explain things to you in simple terms so you feel comfortable making a decision. Then I can help you choose and enroll in a plan that you feel fits your needs.

By the way, it doesn’t cost you any more if you enroll in a Medicare Insurance plan through me as an independent agent versus directly with an insurance company either over the phone or via the Internet, since I get paid by the insurance companies for your enrollment. Plus you will have personalized service by a local agent. If you would like my assistance, please call me at 941-404-5334.

By calling this number, I understand I will be directed to a licensed insurance sales agent.
