We can try to pretend it isn’t going to happen but, like it or not, Medicare’s Review Choice Demonstration (RCD) is coming soon! The phased-in approach has already begun and providers should be taking advantage of the opportunity to begin submitting claims. The states that have gone before us were not given such a tremendous opportunity to test the waters before diving into the deep end of the pool.  This session will review the pre-claim process, including what they’re looking for in the claim, from the provider’s perspective. There will also be opportunity to discuss the good, the bad and the ugly along with lessons learned so far. Attendees of this session will leave with an understanding of the pre-claim process, have a better understanding of operational efficiencies you can implement now to ensure compliance and will have ample opportunity to ask questions.    Course Author: J'non Griffin, RN, WCC, HCS-D, COS-C, Debra Grott, RN COS-C & Kim Wilkerson, LPN  Read More

As the country responds to coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), the role of the home health industry in ensuring the delivery of safe home health care has not been fully appreciated by our health care community and governing regulatory bodies. Various elements contribute to the problems home health agencies have encountered in being able to meet the needs of this patient population including challenges with obtaining and sustaining adequate PPE,  shortages of home health nurses, and lack of adequate resources for employee and patient COVID19 testing supplies. As we journey through the response phase of this pandemic emergency, this session will discuss the importance of agencies continuing to have a monitoring and control plan to ensure staff and patient safety and delivery of patient care.  We will also discuss the importance of home health providers staying abreast of the most up to date advances in precautions, treatment, and control mechanisms within their clinical operations to minimize the spread of COVID19.  Lastly we will discuss the latest information related to COVID19 vaccines, data that discusses their effectiveness, and steps we can take as home health providers to participate in this community-wide mission to distribute these vaccines safely and effectively.   Course Author: Theresa Gates, PT, COS-C Read More

While providers were afforded some breathing room during the pandemic, through payments issued under the Accelerated and Advanced Payment (AAP) program, providers must ensure that they understand the recoupment of the AAP and how that will impact cash flow next year.  The Provider Relief Funds also have mandatory reporting requirements that have been adjusted several times and now have definite reporting requirements for 2021.  This session will bring you up to speed on the terms of repayment for AAP and provide the latest on reporting use of the Provider Relief Funds.  An updated tool from NAHC will be reviewed that will help you comply with the reporting requirements.

Home Health programming has changed under PDGM, and modifications to how we develop and deliver rehab services have been a primary reform focus. When transitioning from the PPS model, with rehab visits as the primary payment factor, to PDGM programs based on clinical acuity, therapy care plans have been all over the map. By trading rehab volume for content value, PDGM has altered the therapy care landscape for all Home Health episodes, and in many cases, maintenance programs have been lost in the shuffle. In this presentation, we will discuss how Maintenance episodes can be optimized under PDGM, and how they differ from PPS era programs. Under PDGM, rehab programming should follow structural guidelines, including SOC FIL levels, and should be managed through an in-agency approach with ongoing rehab reporting. We will review these and other essential elements of Maintenance Therapy development and delivery under PDGM in this progressive presentation.  Course Author: Arnie Cisneros, PT  Read More
