To ensure payment and avoid the risk for additional audits, it is imperative that providers take extra precautions to learn the new regulations and practice careful adherence.
The new requirements consist of new documentation standards for written orders prior to delivery (WOPD) and face-to-face encounters (F2F), along will the additional need to work with prescribers in your area to ensure that the additional documentation is provided.
