    Default Medicare Therapy Cap
    Exam Training Packages
    We are new to the therapy cap process for Medicare and we were wondering if anyone can give us a brief overview of the whole Medicare Therapy Cap process? We understand that the therapy cap for 2012 is $1880.00, but can someone explain please to us this whole process including the exception criteria and the use of the KX modifier?

    Thanks.

    Check this out it is an older bulletin but I think it explains the process pretty well
