Medicare's 8-Minute Rule

Clarice Grote, MS, OTR/L

The 8-minute rule in billing is used in regard to time codes by Medicare to determine how many units of therapy you can bill underneath a timed code based on the amount of treatment time provided. If how to use the 8-minute rule is confusing to you, you’re not alone. That’s why this week on The Amplify OT Podcast, I am answering a listener question on the 8-minute rule of billing!
