New Evaluation Codes for 2017 - Self-Paced

This course is designed to introduce physical therapists to the new evaluation and reevaluation codes, and teach therapists how to select the appropriate evaluation code based on patient presentation. Even though the new evaluation codes are split into 3 levels: low, moderate and high complexity evaluation, the overall definition of the evaluation remains the same.

Physical therapists will select the appropriate evaluation level based on the following components: patient history, examination, patient presentation, and complexity of clinical decision making. A feature of this course is a self-paced review of patient scenarios specific to a variety of physical therapist practice specialties: cardiovascular and pulmonary, geriatrics, neurology, orthopedics and pediatrics.
