About the Event

“While facing the crisis of the century in health care, this webinar will serve to provide clarifications on what is happening so quickly within the industry and address these changes. Cash flow is critical, and this webinar will not only address keeping the current revenue cycle process rolling, but will discuss the Medicare Advance and Accelerated Payment Program process and provide details on relief such as the ever awaited update to all non-physician practitioners to now certify home health patients and sign orders. Face to Face for both Home Health and Hospice will be addressed.

Following are the topics that we will address in this webinar:

• Telehealth: What is allowed for home health and hospice and what is not
• The relaxing of the quality reporting items and dates
• Quality Reporting Updates for Home Health & Hospice
• Accelerated Payment Requests and the process of recoupment
• Nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and clinical nurse specialists now allowed to certify patients and follow in home health
• New diagnosis code for COVID-19 and implementation of the same in the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Patient-Driven Groupings Model Grouper
• Suspension of medical review (Targeted Probe and Educate, Additional Documentation Requests, etc.)
• Revenue cycle keys to keeping the cash flowing”
