Let's Help Each Other
Physical therapy is changing rapidly. As a PT with more than thirty years of experience, the changes observed in the last ten years triple those of the first twenty years. The pace of change is not slowing down. The Medigraph Blog will serve as a forum that will enable us to exchange ideas and assist each other. This blog will be used to share billing, documentation, and any other ideas to improve any aspects of our profession. If we share what we have learned, we can develop a resource that enables our collective understanding to advance our careers.
As profit margins grow smaller and expenses grow larger, we need to assist each other to survive and prosper. If we share our experiences we can help each other to grow professionally, administratively, and financially. Our professional lives, our livelihood, and our personal lives are intertwined. Our resources individually are limited. Together we can accomplish more than we can individually. Let's help each other

CMS has announced that it will postpone enforcement through June 30, 2012 for
any covered entity that is required to comply with updated HIPAA. Though
MediGraph was compliant for the initial start up date, many health care
providers were not ready. Furthermore, the bureaucrats themselves were not
ready to enforce their own standards. The billing for all health care has
become a cumbersome process that government has made worse. For this reason, if
a MediGraph subscriber wishes to employ a full service billing company. Please
call for a referral to such a company.
