Episode dictates restart of therapy counts

Question: Does the therapy count start over if a patient is admitted to the hospital? Since new therapy evaluations are completed after the post-hospital visit (resumption of care), would a new count begin at this point?
Lisa says:This has to do with the number of therapy visits per episode. The count does not start over after a hospitalization unless you’re in a new episode.
