MPI Update - April 16th ~ Manitoba Athletic Therapists Association

MPI Update - April 16th

MPI has received a number of requests from therapists to consider telephone exercise review check-ins with claimants who do not have the appropriate technology or ability to work through a virtual visit. To assist these claimants, MPI will consider a 15 minute telephone exercise review check-in once per week. The fee for this call is a maximum of $28.00 based on the home visit fee of $111.84 (Jan 1 2019) per hour.  
 
All telephone exercise review check-ins must be approved by the case owner/case manager, to ensure only the claimants who don’t have the technology available or are unable to participate in a virtual visit receive this service. MPI will, however, pay this fee retro to the date of the initial check-in given that some therapists have been doing this to ensure the best patient care possible.
 
Therapists will need to mark “Home Visit-Telephone” on the invoice for a maximum of 15 minutes with a fee of $28.00. The telephone exercise review check-ins will not reduce Category 1 or 2 visit limits.
 
MPI will review the need for this temporary service in 8 weeks as we continue to monitor COVID developments.
 
Please call MPI if you have any questions.
