Why You Should Care About Policy
Medicare Policy Influence Everything
As we all know, what Medicare does is often adopted by other providers. Plus, if you work in geriatrics, it is one of the most common payer types. So, if we understand Medicare policy, we can better serve patients and ensure we are compliant with the law.
Policy Influences Your Pay
We can't get paid appropriately if we aren't billing correctly for our services. Additionally, if we don't accurately document our skill and services, we risk denials. Denials and underbilling lead to less play and fewer job opportunities. Further, if you don't know the policy, you could be losing revenue through unnecessary visit limits.
What Happens in DC Doesn't Stay in DC
Did you know that most Medicare policy starts as a piece of legislation in Congress? And that the legislation can sometimes take years before it impacts practice? Paying attention and engaging in advocacy early in the process allows you to effect change before it is too late.
A Bad Policy Can Erase Therapy
It sounds extreme to say that one bad policy could make therapy professions a non-viable career, but it's true. Without advocacy, therapy services could be left out of legislation, could lose licensure, or have reimbursement slashed. Continuous vigilance is needed and that's why we post monthly advocacy updates.
And So Much More
I could go on for hours about the importance of policy and advocacy. Understanding the rules and regulations that govern our profession is required by the Code of Ethics, allows us to explain our services to patients, and ensures we are compliant with laws.
