Accurate and comprehensive certification/recertification (cert/recert) is a requirement for reimbursement via guidelines established by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). That said, CMS provides specific guidelines for completion without offering a specific form that skilled nursing facilities can use to detail all relevant skilling information.
Richter has created a detailed Physician Certification form that is FREE for you to download and use in your skilled nursing facility. This easy-to-use cert/recert form was developed to help guide you through, and provide space to document specific reasons for each of the potential skilling areas such as Nursing and PT/OT/ST, along with additional items required by regulations such as estimated length of stay, discharge plan and more.
