Therapy Functional Reporting Editing

Therapy Functional Reporting Editing

Per the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), standard system editing for Therapy Functional Reporting (THFR) claims has been revised. Providers should re-submit all THFR claims that may have been denied/rejected due to a missing discharge code. This is applicable to both original claim submissions as well as claim adjustments. CMS will continue to monitor the THFR reporting and will issue further instructions regarding THFR as necessary.
