While many home health providers dove into the Medicare Review Choice Demonstration (RCD) with trepidation, there are those who, after six months or more into the process, are finding that the documentation review program is not quite as bad as they thought it would be. So much so that these providers intend to continue participating in the Pre-Claim Review (PCR) process and never look back. This session will explore case studies to offer insights and lessons learned from providers who have successfully navigated the PCR process. Attendees will learn about the operational pitfalls to avoid and tips to help refine your organization's processes in order to improve your affirmation rate.  Speakers/Course Author - Lisa McClammy, BSN, RN, COS-C, HCS-D  Read More

The times they are a-changin', and one of the most significant for home health providers coming in 2022 is the replacement of the longstanding Request for Anticipated Payment (RAP) submission process with the Notice of Admission (NOA) process. RAPs have had no associated reimbursement this year but carry a monetary penalty if not filed timely, and the same will be true for the NOA…but with a more significant penalty punch! During this session, Healthcare Provider Solutions CEO Melinda Gaboury will review some of the key aspects of the NOA process so providers can get paid and stay compliant.

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
