A common concern among aquatic therapy providers is how to ensure their facilities receive expected insurance reimbursement for their services. Beyond making sure all reimbursement forms are properly worded and sent in a timely fashion, physical therapists also need to show functional patient progress to providers. This can be a challenge, especially for those new to aquatic therapy protocols and practices. Kathleen Dwyer, a long-time occupational therapist who has served in leadership roles and has aquatic therapy environment billing and auditing backgrounds, will share her knowledge about this subject in an upcoming HydroWorx webinar.

Dwyer’s webinar, “Creating and Documenting Measurable Functional Progress with Aquatic Therapy,” will tackle the realities that sometimes complicate the reimbursement process. In addition, her one-hour presentation will include methods to keep the atmosphere fun for patients, while still striving for measurable results.

Attendees of “Creating and Documenting Measurable Functional Progress with Aquatic Therapy” will learn several key topics from Dwyer:

  •     What the requirements of documentation are for the aquatic therapy marketplace.
  •     How to prove aquatic therapy interventions are assisting patients through provable, trackable, observable and objective data points.
  •     What to include in all documentation to insurance reimbursement providers.

After the webinar, Dwyer will open discussion for a question-and-answer session.

The live webinar event is scheduled for Wednesday, March 15, 2017, from 1:00-2:00 E.D.T. Attendance is free, but registration must be made online prior to the start time.
