About the Event

Speaker: Melinda A. Gaboury, CEO
Wednesday, March 3 | 12:15 PM – 1:15 PM | W21 – Targeted Probe & Educate – Palmetto

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.
