Program Title
Medicare Essentials:  Medicare Part A Documentation and the Appeals Process & Medicare Part B Growing and Sustaining Your Part B Program


Program Information

Documentation scrutiny continues to increase especially with the January 2014 changes to the Medicare Benefit Policy Manual.  ARDs (Additional Development Request) and denials are part of the Long Term Care industry.  Learn best practice for managing ADRs and the appeal process and to improve your overall documentation quality.

Part B program building is imperative for quality of care and reimbursement.  We will tackle overall part B program regulations, growing part B programming, documentation requirements, sustaining part B programming, G-Codes and concentrate on understanding standardized therapy test, choosing the correct test, applying a standardized test to your resident and associated resident documentation to support your claim.
