A thorough understanding of Medicare Part A guidelines is necessary for you to provide the best care for your patients and maximize reimbursement. Occupational therapy professionals need to understand the documentation requirements given the (PDPM/PDGM) reimbursement models. No matter what the practice setting, the documentation is the only witness to whether the treatment was appropriate and necessary based on the patient's clinical presentation.
