About the Event

The 2020 Home Care and Hospice Conference and Expo, October 19-21, will be a virtual event exploring the theme of “Our Health: Caring for Caregivers.”

We can all agree that caregivers are not always the best “care receivers.” Caring for others is not only instilled in us as part of our training, it seems to be ingrained as a very part of our DNA. For many of us, our mission, quite simply, is to be selfless in our care of others.

Throughout the conference, you’ll find information about other agencies that have implemented wellness programs, the lessons they’ve learned, and the results they’ve achieved. Among other things, you’ll even have the opportunity to meditate, gain focus, and explore yoga.

Our personal well-being is critical to the well-being of those around us. Whether it’s the patients we care for, the staff we are responsible for, or the family we nurture, wellness is our goal.

Monday, October 19 | 1:30 PM – 2:30 PM EST | Home Health Revenue Cycle: PDGM & COVID-19

How has PDGM affected the Revenue Cycle of home health? What is billable and non-billable in today’s COVID-19 Pandemic World? Does your physician and NPP telehealth F2F encounter contribute to your patient eligibility for HH? These and many other questions will be answered in this information-packed session. In this session, providers will learn why it’s so important to understand the billing flexibilities that were afforded to Medicare providers to ensure cash flow doesn’t stop. If one, or more, of these billing parts are missing or are incorrect, agencies set themselves up for denials, ADRs and a host of other billing dilemmas that we’d all rather avoid. Participants will walk away with a much clearer understanding of Medicare billing tips and we will end the session with ample time for question and answer period.
