The Parkinson’s Action Network (PAN) is the advocacy organization for the Parkinson’s community and they continue to work to address challenges resulting from the Medicare therapy gap and the Medicare “Improvement Standard” for services such as physical, occupational, and speech-language therapy services. Effective this year, Medicare beneficiaries can no longer be denied coverage for therapy solely for lack of improvement. Many therapists may not be aware of the exception process so it is important for you to be your own best advocate and share this information with them.
Check PAN’s website for more details.
