- Your medical record must include information to explain why the services are medically necessary
Your therapist or therapy provider must give you a written notice before providing services that aren’t medically necessary. This includes therapy services that are generally covered but aren’t medically reasonable and necessary for you at the time. This notice is called an “Advance Beneficiary Notice of Noncoverage” (ABN). The ABN lets you choose whether or not you want the therapy services. If you choose to get the medically unnecessary services, you agree to pay for them.
All people with Part B are covered as long as the services are medically reasonable and necessary.

Shoulder Injury – Frozen Shoulder
70% of patients will improve with non-surgical care. Initial treatment involves anti-inflammatory medication, ice, avoiding over shoulder reaching and lifting activities. In the very acute painful phase exercises are avoided. When pain subsides somewhat, rotator cuff exercises are begun. The primary goal of the exercises is to work the uninjured portion of the rotator cuff. This is accomplished by emphasizing internal and external rotation exercises using an elastic tubing. Scapula stabilizers are also strengthened. Deep tissue work by a physical therapist can help relieve associated spasm. Isolated strengthening of the most commonly injured supraspinatous tendon should be avoided. If there is no response to this treatment program, an injection of cortisone is provided. Cortisone is a strong anti-inflammatory medication that, when used appropriately and sparingly, is safe and can be dramatically beneficial. iasm.com
