The current policy allows Medicare recipients only 16 visits per year. This cap makes chronic disease management impossible, especially when treating elderly populations. Sixty nine percent of older adults suffer from limited mobility, meaning they will soon, if not already, move to a nursing home, putting a financial strain of $90,500 a year on the patient’s family. Therapy services can also prevent and treat injuries due to falling, as it’s the primary cause of injury among older Americans. Learn more about how removing this cap can improve elderly patient care and even save lives.
