Case Management Weekly, June 6, 2012

Physician advisors can coordinate education sessions and serve as peer mentors for physicians by providing education about documentation requirements applicable to their practices.

 Education sessions can address the following topics:
  • Levels of care
  • Criteria sets used to support levels of care
  • Overview of Medicare, Medicare Advantage Plans, Medicaid
  • Pharmaceutical Coverage, including Medicare Part D
  • Postdischarge services available in the community
  • Postdischarge placement requirements
