  • The physician saw the patient 30 days prior (3/5/2016) to referring and his progress note documents unsteadiness on feet, ordered a manual wheel chair and shower chair. But the referral for home health is dated 4/5/2016 do both of those documents cover us for the F2F requirement? The progress note for 3/5/2016 would not have the need for home health, but does have the homebound status and diagnosis.
