Home > Medical Services > Rehabilitation > Four Mercy Physical Therapy Locations Moving to Clinic-Based Billing
Beginning January 1, 2019, the following Mercy locations providing rehab therapies will move their billing structure from hospital-based to clinic-based billing:
Only therapies (PT, OT, Speech) provided at the 600 Medical Park building on Mercy’s campus will remain under hospital-based billing, due to requirements based on its co-location with additional services, including Cardiac Rehab.
As you likely know, this means patients receiving therapies at the four locations listed above can now pay a co-pay for their services. Previously, under hospital-based billing, patients paid coinsurance and a deductible.
Patients under Medicare coverage have a common out-of-pocket expense regardless of the billing structure, and that will remain the same for Medicare patients. The 600 Medical Park location is an ideal location for these patients for both coverage offered by Medicare and its convenient location and parking just steps away from the entrance.
Mercy’s experienced rehab team continues to accept referrals at all locations, and also offers additional sub-specialties for many unique patient needs to address a range of medical and functional conditions. If you have any questions, please contact Bill Grudzinski at (319) 398-6801.
