Medical Grand Rounds this week is at Moses/Cherhasky only and is intended for the faculty.

Each attending physician who involves residents in the care of patients and who renders a bill for these services is mandated to attend a training session at least every two years.

There will be a sign-in sheet at this session for purposes of documenting attendance.


After attending this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid teaching physician guidelines
  • Understand what the documentation and presence rules are for face-to-face patient encounters as well as encounters falling under the primary care exception rules
  • Have insight into the current regulatory environment in New York State and know how to deal with audits and correspondence from the various agencies governing Montefiore Medical Center

Accreditation: Albert Einstein College of Medicine designates this educational activity for a maximum of 1 credit towards the AMA Physician's Recognition Award. Each physician should claim only those credits that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.
