Hospice Reimbursement Workshop | 11.30.23 NC

Medicare Hospice Regulations continue to be updated and 2023 is no different. The 2023 Regulatory update includes updates to the Hospice payment rates, clarifications on the election statement addendum and updates to the Hospice Quality Reporting Program (HQRP).  PEPPER is an ever-increasing concern for medical review targeting.  Do you know where your agency stands in regard to PEPPER targets? Be among the elite group of hospice professionals that are current on all Hospice Medicare reimbursement related regulations. This workshop will lay a concrete foundation for hospice billers, as well as, any hospice staff that need to more effectively understand the Medicare regulations. This workshop will include field by field on Notice of Election, NOTR, claim forms and sequential billing requirements. The workshop will detail the CMS Targeted Probe & Educate demonstration while also reviewing the regulations for face-to-face encounters and pre-claim reviews that should be conducted prior to filing claims. The workshop will conclude with analyzing the PEPPER information and how hospices can work toward improvement in their scores.
If you have any part in the responsibility of reimbursement in your hospice this workshop is a must.
