Product Description

The Two Most Misunderstood And Underutilized Coverage Areas Demystified.

This audio session will give Registered Nurses and Therapists insight related to the topic of ‘maintenance’ for therapists and ‘skilled management and evaluation’ for registered nurses.  These two areas of coverage have long been misunderstood to the point that many truly believe that these skills in the benefit program are not areas of coverage at all. Many other clinicians have been indoctrinated in the “theory” that “if we use it we will get medical reviews”

The challenge that will be addressed is related to how to document for payment related to the benefit.  Many nurses ORDER “skilled management and evaluation” inappropriately and never ever document the “skill”.

Therapists continue to believe that therapy maintenance is not a covered service.  Indeed it is, and has been for many, many years.

The financial incentives are many. The agency will be able to provide many patients who suffer from long term, chronic diseases with ongoing service (beyond the typical 60 day episode).

Here's What You'll Learn:

  • Learn how to reduce your re-hospitalization rate by using Maintenance (therapy) and Skilled Management and Evaluation (RN)
  • Learn how to document skilled management and evaluation correctly to withstand medical review
  • Be aware of the 5 top reasons/diagnoses patients return to the hospital and how SM&E and Therapy Maintenance will assist in keeping these patients at home.
  • Learn how to create a plan of care that will support SM&E and Therapy Maintenance
  • A change in Medicare policy is coming soon. This change that will bring these two areas of coverage to life!!  Find out what happened and how this will change the way you look at patients with “chronic issues”.

Who should attend? Registered Nurses (those doing visits), Quality Assurance Staff, Supervisors, Owners and Operators
