No. In contrast to other Therapy groups AIRS does not directly or indirectly solicit referrals from Physicians for Medicare Part B Therapy Services to be delivered in home setting. Neither do we market our services directly to Private Pay and Medicare patients. In order to avoid potential “conflict of interests”, our services are available exclusively and only through our contracted Home Health Agency clients. With AIRS you can be sure that our only business is your business!
AIRS leads the Home Health Therapy industry in designing and implementing clinical documentation forms as well as Policies and Procedures to meet the stringent and evolving expectations of CMS, Joint Commission, and APTA organizations for evidence-based content that clearly supports the medical necessity and effectiveness of skilled interventions. Our Copyrighted Clinical Documentation Forms are “best in class” with a long track record of proven success in dealing with ADRs and overturning denials. Our forms have been praised by top consultants in the Home Health field, and by numerous CMS and Joint Commission auditors for its unsurpassed level of support for medical necessity, clear evidence of skilled interventions and functional outcomes presented in concise and easy-to-read format.
The clinical documentation is electronically submitted by our Therapists in most cases on daily basis using our online web-based SOS Electronic Medical Record system. Every file is then reviewed by our QA specialist to ensure accuracy of data and to eliminate errors. As soon accuracy is established, the file is then made available in the agency’s password-protected web portal for viewing and printing, often on the very next day!
By partnering with AIRS your agency will get instant access to our online, state-of-the-art, patented Electronic Human Resource Management System that will enable your agency to access and update credentials and documents for all therapists in our group instantly. This will enable your agency to significantly decrease work hours allocated to deal with this important and challenging task while increasing productivity of your HR department. Our unique web-based system also allows all HR files your agency needs to be ready “anywhere and anytime” for audit by CMS, Joint Commission or CA DPH representatives.

No. In order to ensure the best continuity of care to our client’s patients, to alleviate the burden of strict regulatory requirements for PTA and COTA supervision, and to ensure compliance with Tax and Labor Laws, AIRS has chosen not to utilize PTA and COTA in its Home Health operations. All skilled Therapy interventions from Evaluation to Discharge will be exclusively provided by Licensed Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, and Speech Therapists.
We have made significant efforts to implement cost-savings and efficiencies across our operations, and we proudly pass on those benefits directly to our clients. Our standard rates do not change during the term of the contract, and do not fluctuate based on the number of referrals received, type of contract, or for any other considerations. Our value-added services help our clients save considerable money and resources in their operations, and very often enable agencies to secure thousands of dollars in approved claims – a financial benefit that goes well beyond our affordable rates!
As opposed to other therapy staffing companies who add eye-popping surcharges for special situations, AIRS will not charge additional fee for staffing referrals after-hours, during holidays, on weekends, or for other emergency staffing needs. At AIRS we believe that going the extra mile for our clients is simply good business practice!
Depending on the urgency, we can process your request and establish a Service Agreement with your agency within the same business day. We should then be able to accept referrals and provide skilled Therapy services to your patients within the following 24 hours after the Service Agreement is signed and approved by your agency.
