Home Health and Hospices alike are becoming more and more inundated with Medicare Advantage payer referrals.  Agencies must navigate the roadmap of whether to contract with these plans or remain out of network.  This session will bring a deeper understanding of the key elements of establishing contracts with MA plans and the keys to renegotiating rates after you are in network.  Speaker/Course Author - Melinda Gaboury; Regina Wild, LPN Read More

"Defensible documentation" refers to charting that can withstand scrutiny from various medical reviewers aiming to recoup payments for unnecessary or inappropriate care. In legal contexts, it provides clear evidence of the care provided, by whom, and when. Simply following an electronic medical record (EMR) template may not suffice.  This presentation starts by exploring key Medicare rules and regulations as they relate to National Government Services (NGS) Local Coverage Determinations (LCD) to support hospice documentation, terminal prognosis, and level of care. By linking actual requirements with common denial reasons, it demonstrates how proper documentation can prevent a negative outcome, such as denied payment. Key hospice charting timepoints, including Certification of Terminal Illness (CTI), face-to-face encounters (F2F), and interdisciplinary meetings (IDT/IDG), are covered, along with specific signs, symptoms, labs, assessments, and indicators necessary to support hospice coverage.

"Defensible documentation" refers to charting that can withstand scrutiny from various medical reviewers aiming to recoup payments for unnecessary or inappropriate care. In legal contexts, it provides clear evidence of the care provided, by whom, and when. Simply following an electronic medical record (EMR) template may not suffice.  This presentation examines real denial examples, identifies their causes, and offers charting examples to address them. A condensed overview of essential home health coverage requirements for nursing and therapy, as outlined in the Medicare Benefit Policy Manual (Chapter 7, Section 40) and 42 CFR, equips attendees with foundational regulatory knowledge. Linking Medicare rules and regulations to charting requirements enables clinicians to demonstrate compliance effectively.  By implementing meaningful, well-documented skilled visits, agencies can achieve favorable outcomes in various reviews, including the Home Health Value-Based Purchasing Model (HHVBP), Targeted Probe and Educate (TPE), Unified Program Integrity Contractor (UPIC), Supplemental Medical Review Contractor (SMRC), Recovery Audit Contractor (RAC), and Comprehensive Error Rate Testing (CERT) reviews. Defensible documentation is also crucial in supporting Medicare Advantage services and Medicaid claims.  Speaker/Course Author - Joe Osentoski, BAS, RN, GERO-BC Read More
