Chiropractic and the VA Patient
Dr. Kathy Mills Chang
The Veteran’s Administration has embraced and recognized the good that doctors of chiropractic can do to help our country’s veterans. More and more providers are signing up to be participating with this amazing program. However, as with many government programs, there are specific rules to follow. Missteps in this program carry the risk of non-payment and program removal. Documentation requirements are straightforward and easy to implement. In this session, Kathy Weidner will outline everything you need to know to ensure that your VA patient and documentation process is smooth and accurate, and your bills are properly submitted for rapid reimbursement.
Because of this session, attendees can expect the following outcomes and learning objectives:
- Recognize the key documentation requirements and components required to be eligible to treat Veterans Administration referrals
- Compose documentation that meets these required VA elements, while avoiding missteps most commonly found in denials and audits
- Appraise and self-audit the VA process from referral through discharge, looking for key factors known to be often missing, and understand what to do to correct the deficiency
