Physical therapists still irked about Anthem rates
Orange County Register

A year after Anthem Blue Cross cut reimbursement rates for physical therapy, some patients and therapists are still complaining. Mary Miller, an Irvine resident who has undergone occupational therapy since arm surgery last year, said she’s helped collect more than 100 letters of complaint. She said reimbursements of $75 a visit don’t cover therapists’ costs, which has resulted in reducing staff at practices.
