Medicare Coding and Documentation Toolkit, Part 4: The End of Care

As progress towards established goals plateaus, you may encounter the point of care where it is time to transition your Medicare patient from episodic care to elective care – also known as maintenance care.  After completing this course, you will understand how to correctly code chiropractic care using GA modifiers to reflect elective care versus “episodic” care caused by an episode or crisis.  Presenters Jennifer Rathmann, DC, and Lee Matthis, DC will offer you the tools to easily recognize the “end of care,” appropriately finalize the patient’s progress in the record, and build a system that ensures you properly code the patient’s care as “elective” for visits beyond the episode of care.   

You will also gain insights into how to engage your patients in conversations about elective care, which is not covered by Medicare, as well as the importance of notifying the provider if a new injury or flare-up occurs, which would prompt a new episode.  Finally, the presenters will explain how to use the Advanced Beneficiary Notice (ABN) to provide chiropractic care to Medicare patients after the end of episodic care and how to establish an alert system to update these important forms annually with elective patient populations.  

Medicare Coding and Documentation Toolkit Part 4: The End of Care is the fourth course in a four-part series.  It is recommended, though not required, that you take Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 prior to taking this course.
