1 REHABILITATION SERVICES (OUTPATIENT) Protocol: MSC028 Effective Date: March 1, 2016 Table of Contents Page COMMERCIAL COVERAGE RATIONALE... 1 DEFINITIONS... 2 APPLICABLE CODES... 4 REFERENCES... 7 POLICY HISTORY/REVISION INFORMATION... 7 INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE This protocol provides assistance in interpreting UnitedHealthcare benefit plans. When deciding coverage, the enrollee specific document must be referenced. The terms of an enrollee's document (e.g., Certificate of Coverage (COC) or Evidence of Coverage (EOC)) may differ greatly. In the event of a conflict, the enrollee's specific benefit document supersedes this protocol. All reviewers must first identify enrollee eligibility, any federal or state regulatory requirements and the plan benefit coverage prior to use of this Protocol. Other Protocols, Policies and Coverage Determination Guidelines may apply. UnitedHealthcare reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to modify its Protocols, Policies and Guidelines as necessary. This protocol is provided for informational purposes. It does not constitute medical advice. This policy does not govern Medicare Group Retiree members. UnitedHealthcare may also use tools developed by third parties, such as the MCG Care Guidelines, to assist us in administering health benefits. The MCG Care Guidelines are intended to be used in connection with the independent professional medical judgment of a qualified health care provider and do not constitute the practice of medicine or medical advice. COMMERCIAL COVERAGE RATIONALE Indications for Coverage Short-Term Rehabilitation therapy Covered Services include: Speech therapy. Occupational therapy. Physical therapy on an Inpatient or outpatient basis when ordered by the Member s PCP and authorized by HPN s Managed Care Program. Benefits for rehabilitation therapy are limited to services given for acute or recently acquired conditions that, in the judgment of the Member's PCP and HPN s Managed Care Program, are subject to significant improvement through Short-Term therapy. Covered Services do not include cardiac rehabilitation services provided on a non-monitored basis nor do they include treatment for mental retardation. Rehabilitation Services (Outpatient) Page 1 of 7

2 DEFINITIONS Alternate Facility: A health care facility that is not a Hospital and that provides one or more of the following services on an outpatient basis, as permitted by law: Surgical services Emergency Health Services Rehabilitative, laboratory, diagnostic or therapeutic services Cardiac Rehabilitation: A medically supervised, exercise-based program in which patients with certain cardiac conditions, examples include but are not limited to: an acute myocardial infarction within last 12 months; a coronary bypass surgery; current stable angina pectoris; heart valve repair or replacement; percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty [PTCA] or coronary stenting; or a heart or heart-lung transplant) are prescribed a regimen of physical exercise. The primary intent is to improve the functional capacity of the heart and provide the necessary skills for self-monitoring of unsupervised exercise. Components of a Cardiac rehabilitation may include: Cardiac risk factor modification, including education, counseling and behavioral intervention that are tailored to patient s individual needs; psychosocial assessment, outcomes assessment and an individual treatment plan. Cognitive Rehabilitation: Cognitive rehabilitation involves therapies designed to help improve damaged cognitive functions such as attention, memory and learning, affect and expression, problemsolving, and executive function. Experimental or Investigational Service(s): Medical, surgical, diagnostic, psychiatric, mental health, substance-related and addictive disorders or other health care services, technologies, supplies, treatments, procedures, drug therapies, medications or devices that, at the time we make a determination regarding coverage in a particular case, are determined to be any of the following: Not approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to be lawfully marketed for the proposed use and not identified in the American Hospital Formulary Service or the United States Pharmacopoeia Dispensing Information as appropriate for the proposed use. Subject to review and approval by any institutional review board for the proposed use. (Devices which are FDA approved under the Humanitarian Use Device exemption are not considered to be Experimental or Investigational.) The subject of an ongoing clinical trial that meets the definition of a Phase I, II or III clinical trial set forth in the FDA regulations, regardless of whether the trial is actually subject to FDA oversight. Exceptions: Clinical trials for which Benefits are available as described under Clinical Trials in Section 1: Covered Health Services. If you are not a participant in a qualifying clinical trial, as described under Clinical Trials in Section 1: Covered Health Services, and have a Sickness or condition that is likely to cause death within one year of the request for treatment we may, in our discretion, consider an otherwise Experimental or Investigational Service to be a Covered Health Service for that Sickness or condition. Prior to such a consideration, we must first establish that there is Rehabilitation Services (Outpatient) Page 2 of 7

3 sufficient evidence to conclude that, albeit unproven, the service has significant potential as an effective treatment for that Sickness or condition. Habilitative Services: Occupational therapy, physical therapy and speech therapy prescribed by the Member's treating Physician pursuant to a treatment plan to develop a function not currently present as a result of a congenital, genetic, or early acquired disorder. A "congenital or genetic disorder" includes, but is not limited to, hereditary disorders. An "early acquired disorder" refers to a disorder resulting from Sickness, Injury, trauma or some other event or condition suffered by a Member prior to that Member developing functional life skills such as, but not limited to, walking, talking, or self-help skills. Physician: Anyone qualified and licensed to practice medicine and surgery by the state where the practice is located who has the degree of Doctor of Medicine (MD) or Doctor of Osteopathy (DO). Physician also means Doctor of Dentistry, a Doctor of Podiatric Medicine or a Chiropractor when they are acting within the scope of their license. Pulmonary Rehabilitation: An individualized multidisciplinary and comprehensive intervention for patients with chronic respiratory dysfunction who are symptomatic, who may have had an acute exacerbation, and who often have a decreased ability to participate in activities of daily living. Underlying conditions vary, and may include obstructive (emphysema, chronic bronchitis) or restrictive (pulmonary fibrosis) pulmonary disease, neuromuscular disease, or lung cancer, as well as patients pre- or post-transplant or lung volume reduction surgery patients. Rehabilitation Services - Outpatient Therapy: Short-term outpatient rehabilitation services, limited to: Physical therapy. Occupational therapy. Manipulative Treatment. Speech therapy. Pulmonary rehabilitation therapy. Cardiac rehabilitation therapy. Post-cochlear implant aural therapy. Cognitive rehabilitation therapy. Rehabilitation services must be performed by a Physician or by a licensed therapy provider. Benefits under this section include rehabilitation services provided in a Physician's office or on an outpatient basis at a Hospital or Alternate Facility. Benefits can be denied or shortened for Covered Persons who are not progressing in goal- directed rehabilitation services or if rehabilitation goals have previously been met. Not Medically Necessary Service(s): Services, including medications, that are determined not to be effective for treatment of the medical condition and/or not to have a beneficial effect on health outcomes due to insufficient and inadequate clinical evidence from well-conducted randomized controlled trials or cohort studies in the prevailing published peer-reviewed medical literature. Rehabilitation Services (Outpatient) Page 3 of 7

4 Well-conducted randomized controlled trials. (Two or more treatments are compared to each other, and the patient is not allowed to choose which treatment is received.) Well-conducted cohort studies from more than one institution. (Patients who receive study treatment are compared to a group of patients who receive standard therapy. The comparison group must be nearly identical to the study treatment group.) We have a process by which we compile and review clinical evidence with respect to certain health services. From time to time, we issue medical and drug policies that describe the clinical evidence available with respect to specific health care services. These medical and drug policies are subject to change without prior notice. You can view these policies at Please note: If you have a life-threatening Sickness or condition (one that is likely to cause death within one year of the request for treatment) we may, in our discretion, consider an otherwise Unproven Service to be a Covered Health Service for that Sickness or condition. Prior to such a consideration, we must first establish that there is sufficient evidence to conclude that, albeit unproven, the service has significant potential as an effective treatment for that Sickness or condition. Work Hardening: Work hardening is an interdisciplinary program consisting of physical therapy, occupational therapy and counseling professionals for injured workers or other adults whose injuries or disease processes interfere with their ability to work. It provides structured treatment designed to progressively improve physical function as a transition between acute care and return to work. APPLICABLE CODES The Current Procedural Terminology (CPT ) codes and Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) codes listed in this policy are for reference purposes only. Listing of a service code in this policy does not imply that the service described by this code is a covered or non-covered health service. Coverage is determined by the enrollee specific benefit document and applicable laws that may require coverage for a specific service. The inclusion of a code does not imply any right to reimbursement or guarantee claims payment. Other policies and coverage determination guidelines may apply. This list of codes may not be all inclusive.
