Day 1 | Wednesday, June 15, 2022 | Registration: 8:30AM | Workshop: 9:00AM – 4:00PM | Hospice Compliance – Teresa Harbour, Tammy Stewart & Leslie Heagy

Hospice Compliance continues to evolve and includes multiple moving parts. This workshop will address some of the greatest challenges facing hospice providers today! This workshop will lay a concrete foundation for all hospice clinical and administrative staff, as well as, hospice billers.  If you need to more effectively understand the Medicare regulations, this workshop is for you.  Among the topics that will be addressed: Survey Readiness, the “Patient Notification of Hospice Non-Covered Items, Services, and Drugs” addendum, live discharges, extreme lengths of stay – both long and short, timely completion and updates to the comprehensive assessment.

We will address the appropriate use of the Advance Beneficiary Notice of Noncoverage (ABN) in the hospice setting including its use with hospice level of care changes and when hospice eligibility is no longer supported. QAPI is a topic that Hospices would rather forget about, but it is a fact of operating as a Medicare Certified Hospice and we will cover the details of a successful QAPI Program the the Hospice Quality Reporting Program (HQRP). Other hot topics will include updates to Medical Review and Eligibility Documentation Requirements.

Day 2 | Thursday, June 16, 2022 | Registration: 8:30AM | Workshop: 9:00AM – 4:00PM | Hospice Reimbursement – Melinda Gaboury

 Changes to the Medicare Hospice Regulations have occurred over the past few years and continue. Do you know where your agency stands with PEPPER target scores? Has your hospice encountered patients enrolled in a Medicare Advantage Plan that is a part of the VBID demonstration? Be among the elite group of hospice professionals that are current on all Hospice Medicare reimbursement related regulations.

This workshop will lay a concrete foundation for hospice billers, as well as, any hospice staff that need to more effectively understand the Medicare regulations. This workshop will include Medicare eligibility verifications, field by field on Notice of Election and claim forms and sequential billing requirements. The 2022 claims requirements will be detailed including a review of hospice rates. One full session will be devoted to the VBID demonstration and answering questions about this program and moving forward. The workshop will conclude with analyzing the PEPPER information and how hospices can work toward improvement in their scores.

1- List the basic eligibility requirements for initiating Hospice and Billing to Medicare, including benefit periods and Election Statement Requirements.
2- Detail criteria for line-item billing Hospice Notice of Election and Claims to Medicare
3- Review the Medicare Advantage Hospice Carve-In (VBID Demonstration)
