The specific requirement for physician supervision is an area of confusion for many healthcare members. The questions that come to mind are— how has CMS changed the supervision requirement over the last several years? Why the physician supervision has recently become such an issue. Can mid-level practitioners satisfy the supervisory requirements? What affirmative steps must hospitals take to ensure compliance? Is this solely a Medicare issue? Can auditors go back in time to verify proper physician supervision? What additional changes are anticipated in the near future? What are the compliance implications? Will this ever become a RAC issue?
To find the answers, join Dr Duane Abbey, Ph.D. in this information-packed 90 minutes session.
