Navigating the Payment Maze to Reduce Denials and Minimize Risks

In this comprehensive course, you'll connect the importance of the patient/client management model to your documentation and the codes you select to communicate and report patient interventions. From start to finish, the team of experts will share the latest information on effectively and efficiently communicating (or documenting) skilled interventions, coding for physical therapy services, current physical therapy payment policy, and successful compliance with federal regulations. You'll also learn the finer points of ICD-10, quality reporting, and documenting medical necessity and skilled care, and you'll get tips on audits and appeals.
