Despite the multiple resources and complex electronic software systems to guide us through the required screens and dropdowns, it can still be quite diﬃcult to keep up with the required components to assure reimbursement for covered therapy services for the diﬀerent payor sources. Rules and policies may frequently be changing, which might then result in a therapist’s services not being reimbursed.
This course will update therapists on healthcare documentation requirements, to begin with the most recently updated edits to the Medicare Beneﬁt Policy Manual, since many other payer sources initiate their own documentation guidelines from this resource. Then examples will be provided regarding what payors often expect as they are determining whether therapy documentation meets their deﬁnitions of “skilled” services. Medicaid documentation requirements will then be reviewed, to include examples of what state policies may often require. And ﬁnally Alternative Payment Models will be explained, to support the subsequent rationales for what therapy documentation may need to include for this value based system.
