March 5, 2021 | 9:00am-10:00am | 2020 PDGM Rev Cycle | Session code: 3037

The most significant change in Homecare Reimbursement in 20 years went into effect January 2020. 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.

March 5, 2021 | 10:15am-11:15am | Hospice Eligibility Documentation | Session code: 3038

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, terminal prognosis is. The webinar will help clinicians document the slightest changes in baseline measures. More importantly, you’ll learn how to capture in 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.
