The Adult Rehab Guide: Medicare Reimbursement and the Role of Occupational Therapy provides you with answers to many of the typical patient questions about Medicare coverage of equipment and occupational therapy.
As clinicians, if we don’t understand how the healthcare system works, it is like trying to drive the wrong way down a highway. By understanding the system, you are better able to understand your role and better able to help your patients navigate their healthcare journey.
