A CORF is a Comprehensive Outpatient Rehabilitation Facility: a unique Medicare outpatient therapy facility. Originally designed to be an inpatient rehab facility without the inpatient beds, CORFs have unique aspects which appeal to providers, but CORFs are also challenged by reimbursement rules where payment is by discipline rather than by patient day at your facility.
Join nationally recognized CORF expert Nancy Beckley in a customized webinar to address your interest and unique questions in starting a CORF, or becoming a CORF. Prior to spending thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars to invest in developing a CORF (or purchasing an existing CORF), learn about the CORF model, understand the advantages and disadvantages, and make an informed decision, without further obligation for continued consulting.
This webinar focuses on all the requirements of becoming a CORF, with a thorough review of the Conditions of Participation, Medicare Survey & Certification requirement, current Medicare survey status and accreditation options. The webinar will also review Medicare documentation and coding requirements applicable to all outpatien therapy including functional limitation reporting, manual medical review of therapy claims over $3700 thresholds, the $1900 therapy caps, multiple procedure payment reduction, and Medicare program integrity initiatives. Medicare documentation and billing requirements specific to CORFs will be addressed and contrasted to other outpatient therapy venues.
NOTE: We previously offered this as a recorded webinar. A CORF is an orphan program with CMS and providers are not likely to be able to obtain a initial survey from their State Agency, and their is no current route through accreditation. We are glad to plan a custom webinar on CORFs should you request. We suggest our Rehab Agency Webinar as an alterative – as if there is not an option for a State Agency initial survey, there is a CMS approved accreditation option.
