Our user asked: "Hello, The question of wound care came about and whether or not a PTA can perform/bill for treatment for all insurances or if they are unable to treat. Thanks!"
 
Ask a PT Response: "At our facility for patients with Medicare, the PTA can perform the actual treatment of caring for the wound, but the PT performs the actual assessment at the beginning and post assessment at the end to comply with Medicare guidelines. As far as other insurances, I am not aware of a PTA not being able to perform/bill for wound care. I know for some insurances, ATC care is not allowed despite being under the supervision of a PT but am unaware of this for a PTA. I guess, the best thing to do would be to verify with the patient's insurance company that a PTA can treat/bill for wound care if reimbursement is in doubt."
