Medical Grand Rounds this week is at 8:00 am at Einstein 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

educational activity for a maximum of 1 credit towards the AMA Physician's

he/she actually spent in the educational activity.
