Multiple Procedure Payment Reduction (MPPR) for Selected Therapy Services
Effective January 1, 2011, Medicare applied an MPPR to the Practice Expense (PE) payment of select therapy services paid under the physician fee schedule or paid at the physician fee schedule rate. Until March 31, 2013, the reduction was 20 percent for therapy services furnished in office and other non-institutional settings, and 25 percent for therapy services furnished in institutional settings. Effective for claims with dates of service April 1, 2013, and after, Section 633 of the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 revised the reduction to 50 percent for all settings.
