- This presentation was created in September of 2012 and pertained to the then, “Medicare Cap for Therapy Services”. Although the cap has been replaced by the “Medicare Therapy Threshold” in 2018, this presentation provides excellent information regarding the therapist’s role, documentation expectations, definitions of rehabilitation and maintenance, as well as examples of therapy documents that are problematic. This presentation is a great starting point for understanding how to create better documentation!
