Wednesday, September 30, 2020 | 10:15am-11:15am | E4: Hospice Documentation

Accurate hospice eligibility documentation is critical to fulfilling the CoPs and payment requirements. The lack of supporting documentation for a terminal prognosis is the number one reason for denial. Reviewers often look for a significant decline in patient condition. Although this is not a requirement of hospice care, the terminal prognosis is. This session will help clinicians document the slightest changes in baseline measures. More importantly, you’ll learn how to capture in the documentation the occurring changes that support terminal prognosis – even without a decline in baseline measures. Go beyond the LCDs and common tools for documenting eligibility by drilling down to the details and characteristics that differentiate terminal and chronic patients with the same diagnosis.
