Webinar: Staying Ahead of the CMS Auditor: Why Documentation in Outpatient Rehabilitation Matters

Join us on Monday June 21st at 12:00 p.m. EST, for a free webinar entitled Staying Ahead of the CMS Auditor: Why Documentation in Outpatient Rehabilitation Matters. In this session, you will learn everything you need to know about CMS audits this year.

The Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) suspended audits between March and August of 2020 to allow providers to focus on providing care during COVID-19. But now external audits in outpatient rehabilitation are ramping back up.

Since the Office of Inspector General (OIG) found that 61% of 2018 claims did not comply with Medicare medical necessity, coding, or documentation, outpatient rehabilitation organizations may be targeted more than other settings of care.

During this webinar hosted by WellSky, Blue & Co.’s experienced outpatient rehabilitation business expert John Britt and Brown & Fortunato’s​​​​​​ experienced healthcare lawyer Kelly Custer will review how proper documentation can minimize the chances of a CMS audit and what steps to take if an audit occurs.

During this webinar, you will learn about:

  • Learn why proper documentation is critical for revenue integrity
  • Review what information auditors are looking for in your team’s documentation – from the referral to the discharge summary
  • Learn practical pointers that will protect your organization during an audit

Duration: 1 hour

All registered individuals will receive a recording of the presentation and a copy of the slides from WellSky.
