Maintenance Therapy – Live Webinar
May 22, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm UTC-7| $79.99
A landmark decision by a federal judge in January 2013 changed significantly a therapist’s ability to meet the needs of his/her patient – that decision was on the Jimmo v. Sebelius Case, which allowed skilled therapists and nurses to bill for “maintenance” care. Maintenance therapy differs from rehabilitation and most therapists were instructed in school to avoid the term “maintenance.” The purpose of this course is to help all PT/OT staff gain a thorough knowledge of the laws that govern maintenance therapy, and the ramifications to your clinical practice. Furthermore, this course will address key documentation principles that you’ll want to follow to prove medical necessity of maintenance therapy.
After attending this course, you will be ready to know ifyour patient needs maintenance therapy and how to demonstrate that conclusively by reviewing key case studies provided be Medicare.
