AHCA to Congress: Extend Cap Exemptions

Rate this Entry


 



With all the bluster on Capitol Hill about Healthcare Reform, the plan to include an extension to the Medicare part B therapy cap exceptions process fell apart last week with little fanfare. The exception rule expired on December 31, 2009.

Currently there is a annual cap totaling $1,860 per patient for Therapy services. In years past, the exception to the therapy cap for patients in dire need of therapy care was routinely extended. The exception was supposed to be included in last week's Jobs bill, but it was shelved due to political machinations.

This is having a major negative impact on many healthcare providers and the patients that they treat. The therapy industry was devastated the last time the exception lapsed for a significant period of time in the late 1990s.

If you would liek to take positive action to extend the Medicare part B therapy cap exceptions, please see the AHCA CapWiz page.

    Based on the I-485 Q&A, 85% of visas goes to adjustment of status cases. So out of 140,000 per year, 7% per country maximum is 9,800. And 85% of 9,800 is 8330 which goes to I-485 cases. So 8,330 for I-485 per year per country? Comments pls...

    @ Alan- It's actually greater than this. There are about 160-180,000 employment based visas per year.
