I would consult a knowledgeable medical billing assistant who could help you understand how much you can bill for medical visits.

Non- medical visits won't be covered or billable since there is no skilled need and Medicare requires that.

You could see these non-medical patients for maintenance therapy and charge them as a cash pay therapist but legally, if they have a skilled therapy need you would need to then refer them to a home health agency who is billing Medicare.

Consider grabbing your copy of Home Health Lemons, it offers great insight into how physical therapy pay can affect patient care.

I'm writing another e-book now that talks about how to negotiate home health physical therapy pay. Get my free newsletter to find out when it rolls out.
