Medicare Compliance
By: Best Practices Academy

Course Description

This special series on Medicare consists of the following modules: Why We Must Change Description: Chiropractors have the highest error rate among Medicare Part B providers. For this reason, we continue to come under closer scrutiny from post-payment and probe audits. Worse yet, is the fact we continue to make the Office of the Inspector General’s Work Plan every year. This is not a list we want the chiropractic profession to be on each year. We must change, and it must begin with each individual office receiving education and training on proper billing, coding, and documentation requirements of Medicare Part B carriers. Clinical Documentation Improvement Program Description: This session covers in depth the initial visit must haves, along with daily note requirements as directed in the CMS Manual for Chiropractic. After reviewing this webinar, doctors of chiropractic are encouraged to launch their own Clinical Documentation Improvement Program, so we may lower our error rates, and get off the OIG yearly work plan. Mechanism of Trauma Description: This session provides a brief overview on how to determine injury causation, and the various loads necessary to produce pain. Documenting the mechanism of trauma is initial visit must have per CMS documentation requirement. Care Plans & ABN Description: Care Plans and Advance Beneficiary Notices continue to be often misunderstood and not correctly administered in offices nationwide. This session we go step by step on what constitutes a compliant care plan and when to administer an ABN for wellness patients.
