Medical necessity is a word that as chiropractic physicians we get reminded of in our CE requirements. The reality is that as practitioners we need to make sure that we are caring for our patients in the best way possible and with protocols that are standard in the healthcare industry. In this inspiring presentation, you will learn how integration can help you not only be compliant but how to thrive in helping your patients. Find out what the most successful practices do to establish medical necessity and educate third-party payers on the value that we bring. Learning the world of how to be compliant can be confusing and maybe even scary, but in this talk, you will realize what is compliance and what the expectations that others have in ensuring that we are doing the best we can for our patients. You will also learn the basics of proper documentation to not only affirm the results we get with our patients but to educate the third-party payer and patients on how our treatment plans are more effective.
