Can Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy Co-Treat in Acute Care?

Clarice Grote, MS, OTR/L

The Amplify OT Podcast website

A question I see a lot on social media and in my DMs is about if PT and OT can co-treat in acute care and if so, how can they make sure it is being billed correctly. That’s why this week on The Amplify OT Podcast, I’m breaking down how PT and OT can correctly bill for cotreatments in acute care settings.

In this episode, I cover:

  • What does co-treating mean and why it may be difficult to find clear answers on the topic.
  • The differences in billing between Medicare Part A and Medicare Part B and why you may see providers billing under the Medicare Part B guidelines to avoid false claims.
  • Walking you through examples to help you understand what billing looks like in different scenarios.
  • The importance of knowing how your services are being paid for to better understand the policies around billing.
