New Physical Therapy Medicare Progress Note

We have just updated our proprietary physical therapy Progress Note for Medicare.

The latest revision is consistent with the American Physical Therapy Association's recent endorsement of the World Health Organization's (WHO) 2001 International Classification of Function, Disability and Health (ICF).

The new Progress Note is posted at Bulletproof PT Charts.

The Progress Note is a template and is free to use.

You still have the responsibility to determine medical necessity for physical therapy, demonstrate skilled therapy and show expected improvement.

This note is just a tool to help you get there.

You have to scroll down the page a little to 'Medicare Progress Note and Re-Certification'.

You may need to modify the note to fit the needs of your PT facility.

The note is based on the ICF framework (Participation, Abilities and Body Structure/Function).

The note uses the OPTIMAL scale, baseline and follow-up, for outcomes measurement.

Free free to use the note - if you have feedback either way, good or bad, please tell us to your experience.
