Webinar Bootcamp Series:
Audits & Documentation


Hospice & Home Health Tracks



OVERVIEW

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has announced that as of October 1, 2017, the "Targeted Probe and Educate" model will be implemented for all medical review. This could mean 20-40 ADRs at one time. And, we still have the Comprehensive Error Rate Testing program (CERT), Zone Program Integrity Contractors (ZPICs) and, even "our own" specialty Recovery Audit Contractor (RACs) for home health and hospice providers.

Join us for a two-part Webinar Bootcamp on the audits your agency may incur. We will explore these different types of audits, how to decrease your risk for audits, and how to ensure you have the right documentation to win your case - and support your payment.


LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

PART 1 (applies to both home health and hospice tracks)
  • Identify the CMS entities that may request your documentation

  • Describe the different types of audits that are occurring currently in home health and hospice

  • Define processes to ensure your agency is reducing their risk for audit

Part 2 (applies to both home health and hospice tracks)
  • Utilize tools provided to create a process to gather all needed documentation

  • Describe the specific reviewer guidelines, and learn how the review process works

  • Define the technical components needed to ensure payment
