Is your SNF on its therapy documentation game? Find out here!

You know you’re providing reimbursable skilled care, but Medicare won’t pay for it unless you know how to speak its language. Stop doing work for free and get on Medicare’s wavelength during this 1-hour teleconference -- and watch your denials go down!

During this session, Elisa will cover the basics of skilled care terminology and coverage criteria. You’ll get a better understanding of universal documentation guidelines, how to determine skilled care, and learn the tools to compose stellar documentation that backs up the therapist’s work.
