2016 Hospice Billing Series
A series of 3 webinars for Hospice personnel!
Are you current on all hospice Medicare billing regulations? Billing is a critical part of hospice reimbursement. This three-part series will lay a concrete foundation for hospice billers and other hospice staff that need to understand Medicare regulations. This series will include Medicare verifications with HIQA screen examples, field by field on Notice of Election and claim forms, and sequential billing requirements, including billing requirements to deal with late NOEs. The regulations for billing all hospice services (SN, HHA, MSW, and therapy), face-to-face encounters, and hospice home care will be reviewed. The series will conclude with day-to-day scenarios that billers face, such as transfers, discharges, and revocations. Information regarding Aggregate CAP self-report and palliative care billing will be an emphasis. If you are part of the hospice billing cycle, this series is a must.
