    Default Head up if you're on Medicare & get physical/occupational therapy

    Sad to say but apparently those of us on Medicare may very well be seeing cuts already. Apparently congress can't be bothered to renew the override on caps for physical or occupational therapy. I thought I'd post this for anyone in this situation who may not know and could potentially get a big surprise when they reach the very low maximum. I came across this in the Daily Kos newsletter...

    "For two decades, Medicare has capped how much it will pay for physical, speech and occupational therapy. But ever since the limits were imposed, Congress has passed an automatic exception that allows Medicare to pay for care beyond the caps when the treatments are deemed medically necessary.
    The latest exception expired Dec. 31, which means the caps of $2,010 for physical and speech language therapy and $2,010 for occupational therapy are now being enforced. These services fall under Medicare Part B, which covers doctor visits and other outpatient services. When the exceptions were in place, Medicare beneficiaries paid only the 20 percent coinsurance that Part B requires.
    So people recovering from strokes, or hip fractures from a fall, or who need ongoing therapy for chronic conditions are soon going to be forced to figure out how to pay, or go without the care they need. As of January 25, Medicare started processing claims as patients hit the cap.

    I’ve gone without my remaining therapy because I can’t afford it. Medicare kind of sucks. I can’t get state help because I make $200 too much a month.
