INSURANCE REIMBURSEMENT ONLINE COURSE
“TRANSFORM YOUR DOCUMENTATION”
FRUSTRATED with Documentation? Not sure how to do it? Indeed, we have to do it and do it right! You may have taken various courses in the past or have read books about documentation but nothing compares to our Transform Your Documentation Online Program!
This extensive Online Program will leave you and your staff feeling much more prepared to face that vital piece of the healthcare puzzle: Documentation and Compliance.
Physical Therapists do amazing work that helps people move their lives in a more positive direction, but unfortunately too many times they are not being paid for their services. Complain all we like, the reason for this is often improper or poor documentation.
Physical, Occupational, & Speech Therapy environments are evolving. There are decreases in reimbursement coupled with an increase in audits from third-party payers. These two pressures have increased the importance of compliant documentation by therapists in order to justify the medical necessity of their services and get paid for the care provided. Creating defensible documentation is essential to protect your future as a physical, occupational, or speech therapy provider and your practice.
The course will provide lab-based instruction on how to enhance documentation by linking objective and measurable physical impairments to functional deficits as well as how to individualize patient progress with a relationship to condition, complexities, and sophistication. This course will provide instruction and lab creation of initial evaluations, daily notes, re-evaluations, and discharge summaries so you can become confidently compliant with documentation rules and requirements from third-party payers.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Identify methods to write defensible documentation that links objective and measurable physical impairments to functional deficits that require the skilled intervention of a physical, occupational or speech therapist.
- Describe how to establish medical necessity for patient evaluations that defensively document reasonable and necessary services under the current third-party payer requirement.
- Explain how to justify individualized documentation of patient progression that assesses condition, complexities, and sophistication.
- Demonstrate knowledge of how to successfully write defensible documentation for initial evaluations, daily notes, progress notes, re-evaluations, and discharge summaries.
