We will text you in the hour prior to the start of the next episode, which will be Monday, September 26h. Today’s “Insider’s” topic is outpatient therapy.  Ms Digby explains how to determine which providers are permitted to perform which therapy modalities and then explains the importance of time and duration of therapy. During Episode 150, Ms Digby answers Erona’s question on determining whether breast cancer is still actively being treated or is it now “history of”? The final question, from Staci, regards what documentation specifics are important when the fracture treatment does not involve manipulation. Congratulations Staci for winning today’s “mugging”!
