Product Description

Learn Accurate And Adequate Documentation Relating To The Delivery Of Skilled Therapy Services For Maximum Reimbursement

Therapy documentation for residents in the SNF is constantly being scrutinized by various CMS contractors who are looking for overpayments, fraud, and general misuse of Medicare dollars. Among other areas, auditors are looking at whether or not the therapy services provided were reasonable and necessary, provided at the appropriate level, supported by documentation, or if continued beyond the previous level of function.
 
Nursing documentation is also examined closely during these audits to identify any inconsistencies related to the skilled therapy services being delivered. Understanding the need for accurate documentation between the various departments is crucial to positive outcomes when a CMS audit is involved.
