The Latest Changes to CMS’s Physician Supervision Requirements and How You Can Meet Them

Physician supervision is a perennial area of confusion for those who serve Medicare beneficiaries, as both Congress and CMS keep changing the rules. Questions as to whether non-physician practitioners (NPPs) can satisfy the supervisory requirements and whether auditors can go back in time to verify proper physician supervision continue to perplex providers.

Join expert speaker Duane C. Abbey, Ph.D. in this informative webinar to find the answers to those questions and more. Learn the affirmative steps hospitals must take to ensure compliance, and the kind of documentation you need to have on file to prove proper physician supervision. Find out about additional changes that are anticipated in the near future and their compliance implications, and hear Duane’s predictions on whether this will ever become a RAC issue.
