Understanding and Using the New PT and OT Evaluation Codes [Available in Recorded Format]

Description:

CMS has approved 3 levels of evaluation codes for physical and occupational therapists which becomes effective January 1, 2017.  Even though the reimbursement for the level of codes will initially be the same, documentation requirements will differ.  During this webinar attendees will we receive a brief history on the evolution of these codes, their descriptions, documentation requirements, case studies, and guidance for educating additional providers.  CMS will be looking to see if providers are utilizing the levels properly; thus, education on these codes is key.

The presentation will be 60 minutes in total which will include approximately 15 minutes reserved for questions.  We will provide a handout with the slides the day of the webinar.  The webinar will be recorded and all registered attendees will receive a link for the recording.
