Beginning 1/1/2021 the Request for Anticipated Payment (RAP) will no longer have a 20% payment associated with its processing. The RAP will continue to be a requirement for payment and ironically will be associated with a penalty if it is not accepted at the Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC) by Day 5, the begin date of the payment period being Day 0. The penalty will be a daily amount as a proportion of the 30-day value related to the HIPPS code that the 30-day payment period is worth.
We are extremely proud to welcome 5 Star Consultants’ industry-leading home care coding, OASIS review, and clinical consulting team to HPS. Together with their knowledge and experience, HPS is a stronger full-service home care and hospice resource for both current and new clients.
