The Medicare Part B therapy cap exceptions process will expire December 31, 2013. 

IF CONGRESS DOESN’T ACT, PATIENTS WIL BE FACED WITH A HARD CAP FOR PART B THERAPY SERVICES IN 2014!

Contact your members of Congress ASAP asking them to include a long term fix for the Medicare therapy cap in the Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) formula reform legislation.  If the SGR legislation doesn’t progress, ask them to at least extend the therapy exceptions process.  In addition, Congress should review CMS’ manual medical review (MMR) process as it is not working and this process is in dire need of change.

Please make your voice heard—it only takes less than one minute to complete the information!  By clicking on the link below from NASL, you can advocate for those folks who pay to have Medicare Part B coverage and deserve an uncapped benefit amount!!!!
