OIG reports in 2018 and 2019 identified payment and quality-related problems in hospices.

As a result, audits and medical reviews increased, impacting many hospice agencies. As we transition from a Public Health Emergency, it is anticipated that this trend of increased audits will rise even more for both hospice and home health.

AFTER THIS WEBINAR YOU’LL BE ABLE TO:
  • Define fraud and abuse and the different types of government audits
  • Explain agency responsibilities, critical timelines, and the ADR process, also known as Targeted Probe and Educate (TPE)
  • Identify critical compliance areas to minimize audits and ADRs (TPE)
  • Identify when an agency should appeal a denial
