You cannot afford to miss this opportunity and the very existence of your organization depends on your ability to calculate your particular risk when confronted by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Zone Program Integrity Contractor (ZPIC) audits, Pre-Claim Review Demonstration, and Value-Based Purchasing programs. This session will provide you an in-depth analysis of your agency’s “specific” CASPER data which will give you a good indication of the danger you are in when the Medicare “powers that be” come knocking at your door. You will not only understand your vulnerability but you will also be able to identify weaknesses in your processes and practice management that are putting your agency in peril. Seeing what CMS sees is paramount to your adoption of new systems that will not only keep you off the CMS target list, but these tried and true steps can greatly improve your quality of care and bring you greater financial success than you have ever known before. Participants MUST attend the webinar prepared with two copies of their CASPER report titled Agency Patient Related Characteristics report in the three column version, and a couple of yellow highlighters.

CMS recently proposed two groundbreaking demonstration pilot programs aimed at reducing fraudulent and abusive practices occurring among Home Health agencies providing services to Medicare beneficiaries. A proposed FRAUD MEASUREMENT pilot would establish a baseline estimate of probable fraud in payments for Home Health care services in the fee-for-service Medicare program. In addition, a proposed PRIOR AUTHORIZATION pilot process would require the submission of a pre-authorization request for an approval determination that would be applied before processing a Home Health claim. These programs focus on areas of Home Health production and delivery for PPS compliance and integrity. The Fraud Measurement Program collects info from Home Health agencies, referring physicians and Medicare beneficiaries, along with a historical billing summary of the agencies involved, to estimate the percentage of fraudulent payments. For the Prior Authorization proposal, a Home Health referral prompts the submission of an authorization request to proceed with approved programming. For further insight into how these programs will change Home Health delivery, this progressive presentation will outline the how’s and why’s of the new programs, and identify areas of your care you will want to review as you prepare for these new fraud-fighting models.
