This course focuses on the actual rules and regulations by which therapy documentation is being judged in national, regional and state audits. Unfortunately even the best of skilled therapy is denied reimbursement without correct coding and the required skilled documentation. The complexity of the rules has led to many myths and urban legends, but this course offers all the guidelines and resources to assure success in reimbursement and to prevent denials or fines secondary to any actual audit. This Seminar-On-Demand is 4 contact hours in length (check your state’s approval status in the state specific course catalog for your profession).
