The second edition of the OTPF also emphasizes that humans are occupational beings for the sake of one’s health and independence (AOTA, 2008). At this particular outpatient clinic, the OTPF is used to identify and explain the meaning of certain terms such as IADL or purposeful activity to clients, family members, other practitioners, and insurance companies. This framework is used when processing claims for insurance companies, and it can be seen when therapists use specific language to explains how therapeutic activities support health and function.

The term “payment” is clearly defined as “the activities undertaken by . . . a health care provider or health plan to obtain or provide reimbursement for the provision of health care.” The definition also provides examples of common payment activities that include, but are not limited to: (i) determining eligibility or coverage, and adjudicating or subrogating claims; and (ii) billing and collection and claims management activities. The Hospital’s provision of PHI necessary for billing and reimbursement to GEICO, such as a UB-04 or an Itemized Bill, and its execution of the Settlement Agreement appears to fall squarely within the HIPAA definition of “payment.”
In additional to the original threaded discussion, level one codes are based on the documentation used for CPT. The Healthcare portability and protection act (HIPPA) of 1996, mandated that all claims be reported using HCPCS. HIPAA made HCPCS codes mandatory for billing and coding. It is also very important that every claim and any medical information is done through and acted by HIPPA regulation to ensure the patients privacy. When a patient first visit a medical facility a copy of the notice of privacy must be provided to the patient, this will explain how to exercise his or her rights under HIPAA.

It can have a negative impact on the hospital budgeting and financial planning process for the hospital. It is for this purpose that every healthcare institution should be purposeful on reviewing the accuracy and completeness in clinical documentation, no matter the cost. Even though, for most physicians, most of their time is focused on the actual care of the patient and there is little to no time to devote to extensive documentation, it is imperative to understand patient care includes both the one-to-one attention and the documentation of said treatment.
