Is your return of money to Medicare, Medicaid and other insurance companies due to your lack of understanding of documentation requirements? Are you over documenting unnecessary areas and under documenting the essential areas? Some clinicians claim narrative documentation takes more time than “checking boxes” or “menus”. However, if done correctly, it can save you time and focus a reviewer to the skill and progress you provide ensuring reimbursement and avoiding further review.
Watch this recording and learn essential strategies to master documentation. You will learn how following specific principles when documenting will fulfill the requirements of CMS and payer sources while demonstrating skills, medical necessity, and objective progress regardless of software used. You will learn the purpose of RAC system, appeals process and red flags to ensure you are documenting only what is essential. Simple narrative emphasis can reduce reviews or negate them altogether. Specific examples will be shared of how to take standard exercises, activities, and treatment strategies and apply the principles learned in this course.
