  1. DPT / OTD
As much as I don't want to use this forum as a HW resource, I can't find anything online that would help. So I'm putting together a POC for a hypothetical Pt that has lumbar spinal stenosis and 1810 is the amount that medicare covers for PT/SLP each year. In my plan I was planning on seeing her for 9 visits (including the initial examination). I'm guessing that this will easily cover my 30-45 minute sessions. Would this be kosher?

Mucho thanks for any help!!

The 1810 Cap is based on moneies paid not billed. Figure ~$25 paid per unit. 30-45 minutes = 2-3 units = $50-75 dollars. At that rate --- about 24x 45-minute appointment or 36x 30-minute appointments. Your 9 appointments is fine.
