Dear Doctors and Staff,
I am certain everybody has about had it with Medicare and the constant threat of audits. However, think about this the Chiropractors in
had a 99.7% fail rate on their last audit. Kentucky Southern California fail rate was 77%.
The bottom line, we either learn how to do Chiropractic Medicare correctly or we are going to lose big bucks with Medicare audits and then lose the whole Chiropractic Medicare Program. With such huge error rates, we have already lost from "No limits in Medicare for the Chiropractic adjustment" to a "25 Chiropractic Medicare limit per patient per year. I project if we do not improve our ability to do Chiropractic Medicare correctly, we will be out of the Medicare program. (That also means our inclusion in Obama Care will be challenged.)
The 99.7% fail rate in
and "across the rest of the country", is because none or poor "treatment plans". There must "always" be a "treatment plan", whether acute, chronic or an acute exacerbation on a chronic condition. Kentucky
What goes into a "treatment plan"?
Here it is: both short and long term goals, your patient protocol as to what you will adjust and how and on what frequency, any contraindications and/or complicating conditions. What, where, who, time of any modalities/therapies, home care instructions, lifestyle modifications, outcome assessment and re-examinations.
Remember...you have to know the correct way to do Chiropractic Medicare and you must become "Compliant" in Medicare by producing "documents" in seven (7) "specific" areas.
Don't fool around or procrastinate!!!! Get informed TODAY!!
