Description: In the dynamic world of post-acute care, there have been major revisions of policies regarding the furnishing and reimbursement of physical therapy services. This increased scrutiny has resulted in new policies regarding therapy documentation, assessments, and quality reporting. In addition, post-acute care facilities have faced major reductions in payment and a proliferation in the number of audits and medical reviews conducted by federal and state agencies.

In this 90-minute audio conference, APTA staff experts will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the recent changes in Medicare Part A rules and regulations in the home health, skilled nursing and inpatient rehabilitation settings, what you can expect in 2013, as well as give you a preview of the exciting programming that will take place at the 2013 APTA Post-Acute Care Compliance Seminar. During the audio conference, you also will have the opportunity to ask your questions directly to the experts.
