VideoAudioText

The Medicare Benefit for Home Health under Part A includes both restorative care and maintenance therapy. The Benefit Manual clearly states that coverage determination for maintenance service provided is not dependent on any "improvement standard" but, rather on whether there is a need for skilled care. The purpose of this course is to provide the CMS regulations regarding maintenance therapy in home health define rehabilitation and maintenance level care and provide examples of appropriate maintenance episodes. This is Part 1 of this series.
