CMS Considers Cutting the Fluff

CMS has finally, FINALLY, proposed to remove those pesky functional limitations (aka G-Codes) for all Medicare Part B and some Managed Care Part B claims (outpatient therapy services). We have been doing these since January 1, 2013 and wondering why: What was the significance? How will CMS use these codes? They aren’t even standardized. I am sure you have thought these same things.

The time has come to hopefully say goodbye.

We will wait with bated breath to see if this makes it to the final rule. If it does, we could say adieu to G-codes by January 1, 2019.
