Medicare is required by law to pay for care that is medically necessary. Medicare considers functional improvement to be the primary indicator of medical necessity for chiropractic care. It is up to you, the doctor, to prove functional improvement and medical necessity with your documentation. Dr. Short will show you how to use common practice tools to document functional improvement, medical necessity and maximum medical improvement. You will learn:

• What is Medicare’s definition of medical necessity.
• What does Medicare’s determination of Medical Necessity mean to your care plan.
• How to prove medical necessity.
• How to report this information to Medicare.
• How to determine Maximum Medical Improvement.
