Medicare-Compliant Features in Documentation

8-Minute Rule

  • Each unit of direct time ranges from 8-22 minutes.
  • Untimed codes only count toward total treatment time, not direct time.
  • WebPT makes separate calculations for direct time units and total treatment minutes.
  • WebPT always verifies minute totals and checks them against the recorded CPT codes.

Outcome Measurement Tools (OMTs)

  • Medicare requires therapists to use at least one OMT.
  • Examples include the Oswestry Low Back Pain Scale and DASH.
  • Therapists can input the score of an OMT directly into WebPT during or after the patient completes the questionnaire.
  • Entered scores carry forward from the Initial Evaluation into each evaluative note.
