Can you review the requirements for Medicare Part A and B circumstances for group therapy?
For Medicare Part A, four patients is a group. They should be doing like or similar activities, but I guess they don't have to be. Medicare Part B is two or more people who may or may not be doing the same thing. Medicare Part B does not have a definition for concurrent therapy. For Part A, two or more would be concurrent and so for Part B, two or more is considered a group. If you have a student working with you (the supervisor) with a group, either the student has to be overseeing the entire group, or you need to be overseeing the entire group. You can't split it, that's the big piece there. So let's say it's Part A, and you have four patients, I am overseeing two patients, and my student, Sally, is overseeing two patients, that's a no-no as well. Either I oversee all four, or Sally oversees all four.
