America is facing an unprecedented challenge: nearly a quarter of our population is reaching retirement age. Americans are living longer and with more chronic conditions, which means greater cost to the healthcare system. In essence, the gap is growing between the number of aging Americans needing home care and the available resources and programs to fund their care. In order to thrive in the evolving healthcare ecosystem, private duty agencies must understand how these programs are changing and how newly-emerging programs will alter the landscape dramatically.

Many of us in the home care industry continue to diligently work for a delay or repeal of the Pre-Claim Review Demonstration (PCR). However, as we continue to work toward that goal, providers must also fine-tune internal processes to be spared much of the pain and suffering that has occurred in Illinois. Before PCR kicks off in Florida on April 1, the Home Care Association of Florida invites Medicare home health care professionals to attend a local, half-day, in-person workshop to get ready for what’s on the horizon. We cannot stress enough that this program is not an overview and is not for beginners who have not already started to prepare for PCR. This event has been designed to act as a tool for the analysis and tweaking of the processes you have already established. PCR was created to reduce fraudulent health care expenditures by requiring third-party contractors to ensure claims are valid before submission of final claims. Lack of education for providers and physicians, confusing submission procedures, and administrative burdens have hurt providers and patients alike, yet no evidence supports that the PCR is achieving its goals. Industry advocates will continue to work feverishly to delay/repeal PCR, but providers cannot be complacent and assume the program will not take effect in Florida on April 1! Join us in March so that you can know without a doubt that you are ready, or learn what needs to be done so that you will achieve affirmation rates greater than 90 percent right from the start!

You know that the Home Health Value-Based Purchasing (VBP) Model is expected to improve coordination and health outcomes in home health, and that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) demo has been underway in Florida since January 2016. But, do you have all the information you need to transform your organization into a high performing agency under VBP? Prognosticators anticipate the continued transition away from fee-for-service payment models toward value-based purchasing under President Trump. Beginning March 1 through April, HCAF will host six webinars presented by national experts in Medicare billing, OASIS, and outcomes enhancement to help you obtain incentives for providing quality care with greater efficiency. Topics covered range from bathing to bed transferring and discharging to drug education. As a series, these webinars focus on high priority improvement areas that impact VBP goals.
