The most significant change in Homecare Reimbursement in 20 years went into effect January 2020. At the forefront of the Patient Driven Groupings Model (PDGM) is the clinical assessment and ICD-10 coding of the patient chart. Understanding the impact of coding and the OASIS-D1 Functional scoring is imperative. This session will take you through the crucial aspects of the clinical assessment, coding and confirming the
information needed is received from the physician. 1. Review of the key OASIS-D1 items that drive the Functional Scoring under PDGM; 2. Review the key elements of ICD-10 coding under PDGM; 3. Review the impact of physician involvement in the PDGM model

12:00 PM -1:00 PM CST | Home Health: PDGM – Revenue Cycle Management Changes!

The Patient Driven Groupings Model – PDGM is complicated, confusing and overwhelming. CMS has provided some data on the revenue impacts and new PDGM components, but there is more to be considered. Revenue Cycle, from beginning to end, will require changes to adapt. Preparing now is essential in being prepared for the PDGM onslaught.

1. Outline how agencies will need to consider process changes in their revenue cycle as a result of PDGM
2. Provide a Checklist RAP & Final billing and details of both
3. Outline potential strategies for process revisions and adjustments to achieve a successful revenue cycle transition under PDGM; 4. Outline billing process changes required by PDGM

Wednesday, November 4th, 2020 | 9:30 AM – 10:30 AM CST | Hospice: Targeted Probe and Educate Hospice Update & PEPPER Reports

This session will take agencies through the winding road of Medicare scrutiny. While billing the Medicare benefit and getting paid relatively easy, there is always a risk of things being reviewed at some point and what can you do to avoid denials. Participants will be able to define Targeted Probe & Educate (TPE) and outline the structure of how to respond to any level of medical review that may occur. This session will also discuss PEPPER reports and other data analysis that agencies will need to review to ensure that their risk from medical review is limited. Don’t be caught in the comfortable position of believing that everything is okay. Attendees will take away information that will assist in assuring that your hospice truly is accurately documenting.

10:30 AM – 11:30 AM CST | Hospice: New Hospice Election & Addendum Requirements 2020

Hospice Election Statement Changes Effective October 2020….Are you ready? This webinar will review the detail changes to the Hospice Election Statement that will go into effect October 2020. In addition to the Election Statement itself, there will also be an addendum requirement that will include many clinicians needing to fully understand what is allowed and not allowed under the Medicare Benefit and the regulations to support that decision. This webinar will assist in full preparation for implementation of these new requirements. In addition there will be sample Election Statements and Addendums provided.
