  • CMS Revises Outpatient Rehab Documentation Requirements Fact Sheet

    The Outpatient Rehabilitation Services: Complying With Documentation Requirements fact sheet describes common Comprehensive Error Rate Testing (CERT) Program errors related to outpatient rehabilitation therapy services and provides information on the documentation needed to support a claim submitted to Medicare for outpatient rehabilitation therapy services. Available from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services' (CMS) Medicare Learning Network, the fact sheet also provides tips on how to avoid CERT errors and links to resources that offer detailed descriptions of Medicare requirements for outpatient rehabilitation therapy services.   

    This fact sheet and other documentation guidelines are posted on APTA's Documentation Web page.


    • In Maryland and Virginia we understand that a PTA can sign their own documentation without the PT co signing it. The PT must supervise but does not have to co sign the PTAs note. Is this correct information we have been given? Thank you. Sherry
