Does DOM cover therapy aides and assistants?

DOM will cover services provided by physical therapy assistants (PTA’s) and certified occupational therapy assistants (COTA’s) only in the outpatient department of a hospital. PTA’s and COTA’s must be under direct supervision of a state-licensed therapist of the same discipline. Services provided by physical and/or occupational therapy aides are not covered.

DOM does not cover services provided by speech-language pathology assistants and/or aides regardless of the level of supervision.
