You can report for the Cert and Re-cert as well as the CPO as long as the requirements are met for both situations.
Medicare Carriers Manual states that the person who does CPO should be the provider who signed the plan of care. You can find the the specific requirements for each in the MCM manuals:
Internet Only Manual - Pub. 100-02 Chapter 15 Section Section 30 - G (Care Plan Oversight Info)
Interent Only Manual - Pub 100-02 Chapter 7 (Certification and Re-certification)
Documentation for CPO must be very specific - recommend a log to track covered CPO activities along with time spent and bill at the end of each month or billing period. Also remember that to bill CPO the physician must have had a face to face E/M visit billed to Medicare to be covered.
We just had some denials on this!
Hope this helps
