A South Texas Physical Therapist Claimed Unallowable Medicare Part B Reimbursement for Outpatient Physical Therapy Services

A physical therapist in South Texas claimed Medicare reimbursement for outpatient physical therapy services that did not meet Medicare reimbursement requirements in calendar years 2012 and 2013. Specifically, of the 100 beneficiary claim days in our random sample, the therapist properly claimed Medicare reimbursement on 81 beneficiary claim days, but improperly claimed Medicare reimbursement on the remaining 19 beneficiary claim days.

On the basis of our sample results, we estimated that the therapist improperly received at least $90,000 in Medicare reimbursement.
