IRF PPS Training Event Scheduled 2015

Although CMS published the event as the 2015 IRF PAI, the IRF PPS fiscal year always begins on October 1. The 2016 fiscal year that begins October 1, 2015, has a MedLearn Matter Training Event scheduled to prepare you for the IRF PAI that will be utilized next October.

If you are curious how Arthritis Attestation will be added to the PAI in order to meet the 60% rule, as well as how therapy minutes will be tracked for the 15 hour rule by types of treatment rendered and recorded to the PAI, this is the event to sign up for and attend.

CMS lists this as the agenda:

  • Arthritis Attestation: Item 24A
  • Therapy Information Section: Items O0401 & O0402
  • Signature Page Clarification: Items Z0400A

Don’t miss out! The link above provides you the web page to sign up for the event, the documents to download the new sections of the IRF PAI manual that will cover these new areas and will eventually include the presentation that will be published to take part in the training.

It never hurts to be prepared and to practice documentation in advance of a stated deadline.  This couldn’t be more true for the 60% rule attestation for a patient admitted under an arthritis category IGC/RIC.

Take time NOW to be a part of this education.
