Medicare Coding and Documentation Toolkit, Part 3: The Middle of Care

  • Registration Closed

As the patient progresses through treatment, it’s critical that you systematically document their progress in the context of the treatment plan and functional goals. This course prepares you to appropriately code for chiropractic services under Medicare, including proper application of the AT modifier on adjustment and use of macros.  In addition, you will learn about the vital components of clinical documentation for the Medicare patient at the midpoint of care, including how to thoroughly record subjective and objective assessments, updates to the treatment plan, techniques or passive therapies applied during visits, and changes to treatment frequency along with an explanation as to the rationale for the change.  Finally, presenters Jennifer Rathmann, DC, and Lee Matthis, DC will prepare you to handle and methodically document the necessary conversations with your patient about progress, self-management techniques, potential new treatments or frequency, and in certain instances, referral to another provider.  

Medicare Coding and Documentation Toolkit Part 3: The Middle of Care is the third course in a four-part series.  It is recommended, though not required, that you take Part 1 and Part 2 prior to taking this course.

You may register for each course individually or save 10% by registering for the bundle.
