If you’re ever confused about a new rule at your facility, ask to see the policy. Not only will it clear up any misunderstandings or uninformed practices, it presents and opportunity for everyone to learn and grow in our field. This week on The Amplify OT Podcast, I am answering a listener question about whether or not Medicare puts a limit on the number of minutes of care that you can provide to a patient.

In this episode I cover:
- When you should be cautious of “new” Medicare rules.
- How asking to see the policy can help clarify if the concern you’re dealing with is a Medicare rule or a facility rule disguised under Medicare.
- My thoughts on why the facility we address in the listener’s question may have said there is a limit on the number of minutes of care under Medicare.
- How you as the practitioner can be prepared to advocate for yourself and your patients.
