Medicare Coverage of Outpatient Therapy Services

Medicare Part B covers medically necessary outpatient therapy services, provided you meet the requirements. Outpatient therapy includes physical therapy, speech/language pathology, and occupational therapy.

This consumer fact sheet, developed for us by the Medicare Rights Center, lays out the eligibility and costs of Medicare-covered outpatient therapy. If you’re a counselor who wants to train yourself/others on this information in more detail, see our companion slide deck.
