CMS recently published a list of the most common PT/OT documentation errors with recommendations on how to prevent these errors. CMS’s list does not contain any surprises. It includes most of the issues that PT/OT practices deal with on a day-to-day basis. It is safe to assume that these are the errors that CMS auditors will look for.
The following is CMS’s PT/OT documentation error list with prevention steps. CMS’s publication can be found at https://www.cms.gov/Outreach-and-Education/Medicare-Learning-Network-MLN/MLNProducts/Downloads/OutptRehabTherapy-Booklet-MLN905365print-friendly.pdf
