Course Description

This is Part 1 of the Medicare Documentation series. You can purchase Part 2 here. This course will focus on compliant documentation utilizing the Medicare’ Documentation Requirements as published in the Medicare Benefit Policy Manual and the APTA Defensible Documentation. It will not only address specific content requirements but also the consequences of not complying with these regulations. Special attention will be afforded to effective drafting of Plans of Care, differentiating the evaluation from a progress report, the purpose of the treatment encounter note and ultimately how to document in a way that tells the ‘whole’ story without writing a book.
