Product Description

You should be applying this criteria related to the Medicare Improvement Standard right now.

Although the government insists that it is only clarifying what has always been the Medicare coverage standard and that the Settlement does not change Medicare laws or regulations, the Jimmo v. Sebelius Settlement Agreement standards for Medicare coverage of skilled maintenance services apply right now. You need to know what this means for you.

Bottom line: You should implement the maintenance standard now. Patients should discuss the Medicare maintenance standard with their providers to determine if it is applicable to them.

In this vital session, you’ll get an overview of Medicare entitlement, eligibility, and coverage criteria supporting the Jimmo v. Sebelius Settlement Agreement. You’ll also receive tips for the practical application of Medicare Coverage Criteria for Medicare Part A and B as well as discuss key documentation points for nursing and rehabilitation services.

Register for the session today and get insights to discuss key points of the Jimmo v. Sebelius Settlement. You will also have an understanding of CMS’s Response to the Jimmo v. Sebelius Settlement. Finally, you will be able to identify strategies for practical application of Skilled Coverage for Medicare Part A and B while scripting supportive Nursing and Rehabilitation Documentation.
