HIPAA Final Rule Announced: Compliance Date is September 23, 2013

The federal government has published its final regulations implementing the "Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act,” part of the "American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009” (ARRA), described by the head of the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) in the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as "the most sweeping changes to the HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules since they were first implemented.” The new rules expand the obligations of doctors of chiropractic to protect patients’ protected health information (PHI), extend these obligations to business associates who have access to PHI and increase the penalties for violations of any of these obligations.

Medicare 25-Visit Review Tips

Tips for Complying with a Medicare Review

Many doctors of chiropractic have probably received a request for records on one or more Medicare patients from CAHABA, the contractor/payor for Medicare in Georgia. It is vitally important to all of us that you comply with this request and that your records meet the required standards to properly document the medical necessity of your treatment. These reviews are mandated by CMS to all local carriers to assure claims are properly paid. If your records do not substantiate your care, the claim may be denied, or if already paid, you may be required to refund the money. Read more.
