05/15/2013 - 06/19/2013
Academy Medical presents a live webinar series:
This webinar series is designed to provide participants with knowledge related to the rules and regulations for delivering pulmonary rehabilitation and pulmonary therapy-related services. The basics of Medicare and Medicaid payment for these services will be discussed, as well as strategies to address Medicare payment reductions. The series will also include a discussion of the 2013 therapy cap for Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy, and the new Medicare documentation standards for these disciplines and how that impacts provision of pulmonary therapy. Case examples will be presented to assist the participant in understanding the differences in billing for pulmonary rehabilitation services, pulmonary therapy services, and physical/occupational therapy. Finally, the series will provide discussion of the challenges facing pulmonary rehabilitation programs with strategies to address these challenges, as well as the role pulmonary rehabilitation staff can play in their institutions to decrease COPD readmission rates.
