On March 1, 2015, Medicare instituted and new policy called Prior Authorization for Hyperbaric Therapy for Non-Emergent Conditions. This 3-year model outlines specific documentation requirements for reimbursement of this service. Michigan, Illinois and New Jersey were selected as participants due to their high incidence of over-utilization and improper reimbursement over the past few years. Since the inception of this new policy, there has been much confusion leading to unnecessary payment delays or outright denials for reimbursement for this service.
