Ep 22: Everything You Need to Know About Skilled OT Services

Occupational Therapy Skilled Services

Clarice Grote, MS, OTR/L

I’m sure every OT or OTA has documented that a patient would benefit from skilled occupational therapy services or skilled occupational therapy intervention but how many actually know what it means to provide a skilled service? That’s why this week on The Amplify OT Podcast, I am talking about what it means to provide skilled occupational therapy services.

In this episode I cover:

  • The definition of skilled services as stated in the Medicare Benefit Policy manual. 
  • Understanding why what you do cannot be done by anyone else so you can articulate and justify the value you’re being paid for. 
  • How Medicare says we should be documenting our skills. 
  • Concrete questions to ask yourself to help you determine whether or not you’re providing a skilled service
