A payor walks into your practice to audit your documentation. Are you prepared to properly defend yourself?
Practices that are non-compliant with 3rd-party payor rules and regulations run the risk of post-review audits, Medicare audits, penalties, or in the worse case scenario, being criminally penalized due to inaccurate or fraudulent billing. RMS offers a 1/2 day Documentation & Coding Summit to help you protect your practice, fulfill the requirements of your Corporate Compliance Policy and ensure your providers understand their professional responsibility of compliant documentation.
Our workshops are tailored to meet your providers' needs and focus on real practice examples and case studies. Benefit from education on how to remain compliant with the rules and regulations governing outpatient therapy practices, as well as overcome difficult reimbursement obstacles.
By the end of the course, physical therapists at various levels of practice will be able to:
- List at least 5 top audit flags in PT documentation (for an outpatient setting)
- Describe 3 common mistakes made in PT documentation and a corresponding strategy to meet compliance criteria
- Define each of the 5 types of PT notes and the required items needed to meet their Local Coverage Determination (LCD) regulations
- Compare at least 2 factors that demonstrate skilled care in documentation
- Compare and contrast the different requirements between the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) and the Functional Limitation Reporting System
1/2 Day Courses are available either in-person at your practice or via webcast. Live full day summits are available upon request.
