COVERAGE

 

Coverage of recreational therapy is determined by regulations governing the site of delivery of the interventions or services. Recreational therapy, as with all allied health professions, adheres to what is known as Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) regulations, rules, and guidelines put forth by that entity, primarily Medicare and Medicaid managed by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Settings have pre-established regulations which identify services and interventions specific for that particular setting that are covered by the MACs.
