Physical therapists are another healthcare provider that will get caught in Medicare RAC audits, as I posted on June 20th.
Medicare recovery audit contractors (RAC) draws criticism from stakeholders - 06/25/08.
The article states the following...
"The RAC, which, according to Smith, acted in an aggressive manner, also cited a lack of documentation regarding documents that the practice had provided in electronic format."
Once again, the problem stems from a lack of documentation.
Physical therapists need a simple way to document the services they provide.
Physical therapists need to quickly and accurately show the following:
1) Medical Necessity for Physical Therapy
2) Skilled Physical Therapy Services
3) Expected Improvement in a Reasonable Time Frame
How can a Physical Therapy manager do this consistently?
