There’s no denying that functional limitation reporting is a little more work to get the same (or less if you consider MPPR) reimbursement and that ignites fear among some in our industry. But you shouldn’t be fearful; you should be frustrated at our own inability to document to a standard that shows our clinical relevance and the amazing outcomes we achieve every day in clinics across the US.
It’s April. And that means spring has sprung. Even though many across the country would argue that winter is still hanging on for dear life, the leaves will soon unfurl and the sun will shine. So what does this mean for you and your practice? It means now’s the time to shake off the winter doldrums and spring forward (see what I did there?) into new beginnings.
Over the last several months, we focused much of our content on the significance of documentation. Not simply because of its importance in remaining compliant and receiving reimbursements but also because of the bigger picture—it’s crucial in elevating our profession; achieving autonomy, direct access, and respect; and receiving the recognition we deserve as the musculoskeletal experts.
