2013 Court Rulings have altered the traditional CMS interpretation improvement standard regarding therapy coverage for chronic patients. As a result, maintenance therapy can now be provided to qualifying Home Health patients under the Medicare benefit. Providers who plan to deliver maintenance programs to their patients should be knowledgeable about the skill level required, how to manage these types of patient programs, and how your therapy staff should produce and deliver these care plans. Learn the specifics of maintenance programming from this progressive webinar series, and create audit-proof programs for chronic patients.
