Outpatient, Physical and Occupational Therapy Providers

48-Unit Benefit Limit in Provider Web Portal

Providers are reminded that members may receive up to 48 units of any combination of physical therapy/occupational therapy (PT/OT) services per rolling 12-month period before a Prior Authorization Request (PAR) is required. Evaluation and orthotic services are not included in this limit. This equates to roughly 12 hours of therapy services (each unit of service being equal to 15 minutes). This unit limit will be automatically enforced by the Colorado interChange by denying claims that exceed the limit.

The Provider Web Portal will display the number of outpatient PT/OT units a member has used in the past 12 months; however, the accuracy of the Web Portal is limited by the timeliness of submitted claims. It should not be relied upon to inform the provider of an absolute number of remaining units. Providers are advised to always seek a PAR at the beginning of a member’s therapy if it is anticipated the member will require more than 48 units of service in a 12-month period.

Beginning September 1, 2020, providers will not be granted a retroactive PAR based on the unit count displayed in the Provider Web Portal.

Become a Conference Partner This Year

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to virtually present your products and services to Colorado PTs. This is the only statewide conference for PTs, and we plan to have the largest attendance yet due to the new virtual format and much lower cost to attend. With the uncertainty of the COVID-19 Pandemic we have gone completely virtual for the Annual Conference and have come up with some new packages to include sponsorships and a virtual exhibit hall in our conference. The virtual exhibit hall will be hosted on the conference virtual platform before, during and after the live conference has happened.

APTA Colorado has put together a couple of different packages for our partners and supporters to give them the most exposure possible in a virtual format!
