On Friday, December 17th, 2021, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit dissolved the Fifth Circuit's stay on the Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) issued by the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), effectively requiring all employers with 100 or more employees to ensure their workers are either fully vaccinated or submit to weekly testing and maintain mask-wearing at all times in the workplace. Following the Court's order, OSHA was quick to announce that employers now have to meet these deadlines: - Compliant policies must be developed by January 10, 2022 - Testing programs must begin by February 9, 2022 Additionally, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has been allowed to implement and enforce its Omnibus COVID-19 Health Care Staff Vaccination Interim Final Rule in 26 states, including Florida, which requires all home health agencies that are Medicare- or Medicaid-certified ensure that all staff is fully vaccinated with no testing alternative. Experts are strongly recommending that providers don't wait to begin creating and implementing these policies! OSHA has made it very clear that they intend to begin enforcement efforts immediately. Join HCAF as we welcome back industry expert, Greg Henderson of Whirks, to bring us up to date on everything you need to know now to ensure compliance! Read More

Documentation in home health has always been a challenge. Throwing in that coding is now a large part of the revenue that your agency receives makes documentation more important than ever. The struggles with outside documentation from providers and clinician documentation are enough to drive a quality review department crazy. During this webinar presentation, we will discuss what clinicians need to know to get it right the first time. Speakers/Course Authors - J'non Griffin, HCS-D, COS-C, HCS-H, HCS-C Read More

The Medicare Home Health Value-Based Purchasing (VBP) demonstration was conducted in nine states, including Florida, from 2016 through 2020. The demonstration was designed to give Medicare-certified home health agencies (HHAs) incentives to give higher quality and more efficient care. HHAs in these states competed on value in the VBP Model, where payment was tied to quality performance. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced that it is likely that VBP will be expanded nationally in January 2023. This webinar will assess the impact of this expansion on Florida providers and others in demonstration states as well as forecast what all providers can expect if the expansion is implemented.  Speakers/Course Authors - Melinda A.
