Power Seat Elevation is COVERED for beneficiaries enrolled in traditional Medicare (Part B) and ALL Medicare Advantage Plans (Part C) regardless of their diagnosis, as long as they meet the coverage criteria for a PWC. How do you know your client will qualify for this new benefit, and what can you do if they don’t? This course will provide clinicians with practical tools to evaluate and document the need for this power seat option; and assist suppliers in interpreting the information in the medical record to determine when and how to provide this enabling technology across all PWC groups. It will also include an industry update on this enabling technology with time for Q & A.
- Participants will be able to list the coverage criteria for the PWC base to determine the best client-equipment match when recommending a seat elevation system.
- Given evaluation findings, participants will be able to identify the need for a power seat elevation to transfer.
- Given evaluation findings, participants will be able to identify the need for an individual to use a power seat elevation system to reach and perform or participate in their ADLs.
