Documenting & Billing for IM® within the Healthcare Setting

The purpose of this course is to advance your clinical knowledge & implementation of the Interactive Metronome (IM) within the healthcare setting. As you are already aware, how you document and bill for your services determines to a large extent whether you will be reimbursed. Here, we will focus on specific terminology for documentation & the creation of functional & measurable therapy goals/objectives for IM®. CPT codes for OT, PT, SLP, & PSYCH services will also be discussed within the context of IM service delivery.
