This session was recorded on Friday, September 6, 2013.
Dr. Ron Hirsch from Accretive PAS joined us to recap a talk he just did earlier this week at a conference in St. Louis. Ron reviewed for us a part of his presentation, including:
- The Basis for Reviews
- New & Old Words Defined
- Medical Necessity vs. Presumption
- What Would Medicare Do? (WWMD)
However… the majority of the call, we actually spent going over a NEW document from CMS — what appears to be some sub-regulatory guidance on CMS-1599F, the IPPS Final Rule and the 2 Midnight Benchmark.
The document is entitled, “IP Certification and Order 09 05 13” – the first page carries the title, “Hospital Inpatient Admission Order and Certification”
