Description: Since the release of the revised Medicare manual provisions as a result of the Jimmo v. Sebelius final settlement, there has been a healthy debate in the physical therapy community regarding when skilled maintenance therapy is appropriate and what the parameters should be regarding amount, duration, and frequency. In this webinar, Anita Bemis-Dougherty and Roshunda Drummond-Dye will discuss the Medicare manual provisions as well as provide clinical and regulatory insight on how to properly treat patients under the Medicare skilled maintenance benefit, while minimizing risk of denials from Medicare administrative contractors (MACs).
