Did you ever want to understand the mystery of the so-called "skilling" of patients? This session is intended for medical directors, physicians, and other clinicians who manage patients receiving the "skilled" level of care in nursing facilities. We will review the regulatory requirements for the skilled nursing facility level of care, demonstrating how to determine medical necessity for daily skilled rehabilitation or nursing services, and how to properly order and document these services to ensure appropriate compliance.
