Medicare Coverage, Payment & Denials

Course Overview

Coverage and payment for therapy services are related, but separate terms and are regulated by separate authority. An understanding of the Medicare terminology is essential for therapists to ensure services meet coverage criteria and can be paid. Payment for service is at risk when coverage is not proven in the medical records. This Course explains the differences and also provides proven strategies to respond to ADRs (Additional Development Requests) and TPE (Targeted Probe & Education) reviews.
