There certainly must be some intense level of scrutiny by the recovery auditors on inpatient rehabilitation facilities (IRF) given the number of questions the subject generated today during Monitor Monday. Angela M. Phillips, PT, president and CEO of Images & Associates, was the special guest today. She wasted no time delving into the subject. In a six minute segment, Phillips plowed through a number of issues — key areas of focus by the RACs, the elusive 1/1/201 and what the clarifications mean to facilities and tips for avoiding denials. When she finished, Phillips stayed on the broadcast to answer questions. Lots of them. So many questions, that we asked Phillips to write an article and she’s agreed to do so. Look for Angie’s article in the April 18th edition of RACmonitor e-news.
