LAURIE HINDS, OTR/L, is a board-certified licensed Occupational Therapist with more than 30 years of experience working in a variety of settings, primarily specializing in the treatment of neurological disorders in adults. Since 2011, she has worked at SavaSeniorCare Consulting, LLC as a medical review specialist in denials and appeals. Ms. Hinds' success at redetermination and reconsideration is due to her strong knowledge of Medicare documentation requirements and her detail-oriented documentation reviews. She has also represented SavaSeniorCare SNFs during more than 30 Administrative Law Judge hearings for denials of Part A RUG episodes of care and Part B outpatient therapy, where she received partial to fully favorable decisions 91% of the time. Due to the ever-shifting landscape of insurance and Medicare, Ms. Hinds has made it her mission to continually educate other therapists on what to expect in regards to minimizing denials and maximizing reimbursement.
