Livanta has been operating as the Beneficiary and Family Centered Care Quality Improvement Organization (BFCC-QIO) since August 1, 2014. It is responsible for reviewing all Medicare discharge appeals and quality of care concerns for beneficiaries in many states, including New York.
Livanta has created a bulletin which offers several important reminders regarding standards of practice for physical therapy (PT) and discharge appeals.
Livanta has asked us to share this latest bulletin with our provider membership and we recommend that you forward this information to the appropriate staff in your agencies. It is at http://hca-nys.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/PTDischargePlanningReminderFinal.pdf.
