Physician Certifications: What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You
Arguably no form holds as much power over payment/claims approval as physician certification and recertification forms. Whether required items are completed incorrectly, dates are incorrect or the form is not completed, physician certifications and recertifications are the only document in an Additional Development Request (ADR) that cannot be appealed.
Many skilled nursing providers don’t understand the significance of physician certifications and recertifications; consequently, they often are assigned to staff with little to no training and/or lack of appropriate oversight, which typically leads to costly errors.
On Tuesday, December 4, Celeste Rininger, RN, RAC-CT, Clinical Consultant with Richter, will help you understand how to properly handle certifications and recertifications during an informative webinar: Physician Certifications: What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You.
