    I am not sure if this is appropriate to post here but feel it could be helpful information for many. I apologies if this is not appropriate since it technically isn't about VA. Due to a law suit settled in January 2013 Medicare is now required to proceed w/ maintenance therapy such as PT, OT & ST for patients who previously had therapy stopped due to showing no improvement. This was especially true for patients w/ Parkinson's, Lewy Body Dementia etc. This is for inpatient, nursing homes, assisted living, or outpatients. The link for information is:
