Workshop Information:

While therapists may shiver at the idea of an insurance plan reviewing a client's chart, records requests are happening more frequently, even to therapists who aren't affiliated with a health plan.  Without proper documentation of medical necessity for treatment, goals, and interventions, insurance may not cover necessary treatment.  Attendees will learn how to write notes that will assist in treatment, as well as to meet the expectations of state law, professional ethics, licensing boards, and insurance plans, as well-written records can be a therapist's best defense when a complaint is filed or treatment is reviewed.
