Much discussion and interest have been generated since the ruling on Jimmo v. Sebelius occurred. However, lack of understanding at all levels of the organization regarding maintenance therapy has made people wary of providing this level of care, despite the fact that it is part of what the Medicare beneficiary is entitled to. Without clarity, implementation risks are real, and there are few resources available to ensure appropriate patient identification, case management, and discharge planning. This course is applicable to the leadership and clinical staff of both home care agency and outpatient clinic providers. This course will provide an opportunity to apply knowledge gained through participation in the maintenance therapy courses. The focus will be Medicare Part B home health.
