Therapy Services
A comprehensive, integrated analysis to assist in building efficient and cost-effective therapy programs. Whether your facility has an in-house program or is under contract, therapy is one of your largest cost centers under PPS. A well-run, cost effective therapy department is often the most important component to a successful Medicare program.
