CMS’ Value-Based Purchasing Model demonstration is “pay-for-per-formance” on steroids and it is coming to a state near you! Are you ready if Florida is chosen? This demo will be implemented in 5 to 8 states effective Jan 1, 2016. John will discuss the demo’s theory and premise, what we currently know and what we can reasonably project for 2016 and beyond. Many believe Florida will be selected and that it will be a controversial and potentially catastrophic provision for those states selected. Even if Florida is not selected, the Value-Based Purchasing Model will become a national program in a short period of time and there’s no better time to prepare for its implementation than the present.

The Home Health PPS Regulation for implementation January 2016 has brought about changes to the PPS System, but most importantly more cuts in reimbursement. The billers and collectors are extremely important to agencies thriving in the current system so do not miss this needed education! Be the first to be current on all Medicare billing regulations implemented in 2016. This webinar series will lay a concrete foundation for home health billing, as well as, financial staff by giving billers a more effective approach to the Medicare PPS regulation, conducting Medicare verifications and understanding adjustments. We will discuss Medicare verifications on patients with HIQH/HETS screen examples & review adjacent episode calculations - field by field on claim forms. We will review the process of auditing a pre-bill for final claim purposes, both Medicare and Non-Medicare Payers, and review the details of billing for Non-Routine Supplies using billing guidelines. More and more scrutiny of agency records has been taking place in the form or ADR and RAC reviews. The webinars will outline the current risks and outline steps to manage that risk. If you are part of the revenue cycle in your agency these webinars are a must! Course instructor - Melinda Gaboury Read More

MS has focused much of their recent health care reform efforts on costly and inefficient elements of traditional care delivery under the Medicare model. One of the greatest cost concerns of the care continuum is the rate of hospital readmissions; particularly those patients who return to the hospital within 30 days of discharge. These patients, who are unable to complete their care episodes in the community due to medical concerns, nearly double the cost of the episode when they are readmitted to the hospital. Beginning October 1, hospitals were penalized for readmissions that occur for specific diagnoses, and this will continue to the eventual ACO/Bundling models, where readmissions will be effectively un-funded for hospital providers. This webinar series will address the topic of costly readmissions, how some hospitals are preparing to address these concerns, the role of post-acute home health providers in reducing the rate of re-hospitalizations, and ideas on how to address patients traditionally readmitted to acute care. In addition, specific diagnoses will be vetted for focused and effective interventions that can reduce returns to acute care hospitals. Readmission rates are expected to decline to single digit levels over the next decade, and the time to prepare your staff and care protocols to achieve these levels is now.
