Funding denials continue to frustrate therapists and suppliers. They know the client needs the equipment, and believe the client is eligible, but are surprised by funding denials. Reviewing the letters, they are unable to see why the client has been denied. From an adjudicator perspective, the therapist has not made the connection between the clinical assessment results, the funding eligibility criteria, and the final prescription. The supplier may also have missed details in coding and obtaining proper documentation. This workshop targets this knowledge gap.
Identify how to find the eligibility criteria for a funding agency, and why is this important.
Distinguish vague justification vs objective justification for CRT.
Demonstrate connecting assessment findings to justifications for CRT.
