The participant will gain a basic understanding of the role these play in influencing Medicare reimbursement. Sessions 2, 3 and 4 will review these topics in depth and present solutions to common problems.
The second webinar, "Asses It" is an in depth course to help the participant understand ADL coding and the ADLs that impact reimbursement. The most common coding errors are reviewed, as well as helpful tips to prevent them. Case studies will be presented to illustrate the significant financial loss associated with inaccurate coding of ADLs.
The third webinar, "Provide It"is a course that helps the participant gain confidence in understanding what conditions & services are considered to be skilled nursing.

The last webinar is a fun course that provides background knowledge related to skilled services.

Theory related to documentation is provided, as well as fun “compare & contrast” charting examples that help to clearly show how just changing or adding a few words can make a big impact.
