Webinar: Critical Therapy Changes: New Reporting, More Audits


January 30, 2013

2p.m. est - 3p.m. est


Effective January, 1, 2013 the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) will require new codes and modifiers on claims for therapy services that convey information about patients’ functional limitations at the outset, periodically throughout therapy, and at discharge. 

This webinar will provide a deeper understanding of how the 2013 regulatory outlook will impact aging services providers. Attendees will:

  • Learn about strategies to optimize success with the Manual Medical Review preauthorization process. 
  • Understand the Functional Status codes providers will have to choose from for reporting as well as requirements for reporting frequency. 
  • Review examples of external review processes and key success strategies for dealing with external audits.
