FREE Proprietary Physician Certification Medicare Part A and C Form

Posted by Richter on Mar 13, 2020 10:26:01 AM

Accurate and comprehensive certification/recertification (cert/recert) is a requirement for reimbursement via guidelines established by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). That said, CMS provides specific guidelines for completion without offering a specific form that skilled nursing facilities can use to detail all relevant skilling information.

Richter has created a detailed Physician Certification form that is FREE for you to download and use in your skilled nursing facility. This easy-to-use cert/recert form was developed to help guide you through, and provide space to document specific reasons for each of the potential skilling areas such as Nursing and PT/OT/ST, along with additional items required by regulations such as estimated length of stay, discharge plan and more.

Mega-Rule Quick Reference Guide

Posted by Richter on Jul 17, 2017 5:24:34 PM

In September 2016, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid released its long-awaited nursing facility “Mega-Rule” – also called the Final Rule – so named because it represents by far the most comprehensive revision of CMS’ requirements for nursing homes since 1991.

The overarching goal of the Mega-Rule is to improve patient care and safety for the nearly 1.5 million residents in the more than 15,000 long-term care facilities that participate in the Medicare and Medicaid programs. 

Our 2016 Mega-Rule Quick Reference Guide will help your facility to better understand the Mega-Rule and its specific components.
