LEOSR'S main priority is to the professional license security of each therapist working with in the company. LEOSR'S background check the home health agency client prior to having a contract with them to make sure that this home health agency is a reputable company. We check home health agency`s Medicare deficiencies, census and call the trade references.
LEOSR will always respect each therapist professional judgement to patient care. We will never dictate our therapist of how many visits does his/her patient needs. We want our therapist to comply with the professional and licensing agencies regulation.
2) HOW DO WE GET PAID
All LEOSR Home Health Therapist individual contractors are paid every 2 weeks. The LEOSR Accounting Department provides Direct Deposit for paychecks. Therefore, it is very important to submit the notes within the scheduled deadline day of submission to prevent delay of payment.
Qualifications of the Visit Note to be included in payroll:
1) Payment only for complete notes, and no payment for incomplete notes (returned for review, saved, etc.)
2) Payment only for notes in Kinnser with the corresponding original patient signature sheet, and no payment for notes not in Kinnser without emailed or faxed patient signature sheet.
3) Payment of work supported by the Time Sheet, and no payment of work without a corresponding Time Sheet.
Deadline of submission of notes:
All notes posted in Kinnser must be submitted for approval on the same week it was submitted. Every work week starts on Sunday and ends on Saturday of that same week. Therefore, the deadline to submit notes will be on Saturday of every work week. There will be 2 days grace period and the deadline for submission will be on Monday 12PM CST.
Patient Signature Forms:
Below are the two ways to submit your paperwork to LEOSR for timely payment.
By Mail:When the patient has been discharged or when a new certification period has started
It is the home health therapist responsibility to make sure that his/her mailed note is receive by LEOSR in a timely manner. It is not LEOSR`s responsiblity for lost and delayed notes due to mailing.
LEOSR Home Health Therapists may also personally submit their Patient Signature Forms and Timesheet to the LEOSR office.
If the Signature Forms are brought to the LEOSR office after Monday, there will be no penalty, but the therapist’s payment for these delinquent Signature Forms will not be reflected on that payroll, but will be paid on the following payroll period. Assuming that the delinquency period is no longer than one week. After two weeks of delinquency, the Home Health Agency does not pay LEOSR, nor does LEOSR pay the home health therapist.
When an error is committed by a Home Health Therapist while posting or uploading their Progress Notes in Kinnser, a LEOSR personnel will contact the therapist to inform them of their error. The Home Health Therapist will be given 24 hours from the time of LEOSR contact to correct the error(s) and resubmit the Progress Note.

3) CONTRACT QUESTIONS
What is LEOSR?LEOSR is a staffing company, owned by a Physical Therapist, specialized to assist Home Health Agencies through sending licensed physical therapists, occupational therapists, and medical social workers to their patients’ houses.
Does LEOSR cover Mileage?:No, we do not cover mileage. Being an independent contractor therapist, you are responsible in declaring your mileage and get the tax deduction from IRS at the end of the year.
What is the time for work?:
Your time is flexible if you work with us. You can see patients between 8am to 6pm. However, your schedule is coordinated with your patient.
Yes. PLease call or email April and she will explain the system to you.
Professional Liability Insurance protects you from claims if your patient holds you responsible for errors, or the failure of your allegations. It will pay for any resulting judgments against you, including court costs, up to the coverage limits on your policy.
Does LEOSR have a liabilty insurance for the company?
Yes. As an IRS definition of "independent contractor (IC)", you must be responsible for all your equipment to be use during patient care, responsible for your renewal of licenses etcs. If something happen during your practice, your license will be held liable and not the company since you are an independent contractor. Usually it is wise to purchase the coverage prior to seeing any patient.
You may work in LEOSR or any therapy company without a professional liability insurance. Some HHA's do request your profesional liability insurance. But why take a risk? The $200 to $400 per year cost of insurance may save your profession and family. Our suggestion is, don`t practice your profession without a professional liabilty insurance. You are taking a serious risk.
Either way, it is recommended that the IC carries his/her own professional liability coverage to protect themselves. Also, IC’s carrying their own coverage will help protect Theramax from the responsibility of carrying the IC liability.
