Session Description:
Did you ever want to understand the mystery of the so-called "skilling" of patients? This session is intended for medical directors, physicians, and other clinicians who manage patients receiving the "skilled" level of care in nursing facilities. We will review the regulatory requirements for the skilled nursing facility level of care, demonstrating how to determine medical necessity for daily skilled rehabilitation or nursing services, and how to properly order and document these services to ensure appropriate compliance.

Learning Objective(s):

  • Describe the regulations governing the skilled nursing facility (SNF) level of care vs. custodial care.
  • Describe the role of the attending physician and medical director in certifying the SNF level of care.
  • Discuss the role of the medical director and clinician in documentation and orders regarding SNF level of care.
  • Explain the role of the medical director and clinician in the termination of SNF services and appeals.
