Monday, July 15, 2019 | 2:00 PM – 3:40 PM | 201. Revenue Cycle Management

Managing the home health revenue cycle is daunting. While cash flow efforts must be successful, agencies must also guard against potential compliance threats. With Medicare Advantages Plans at an all-time high and new payers continuing to flock to the industry, the revenue cycle becomes more complex. If processes are not effectively managed the consequences to cash flow can be dire. The onslaught of PDGM is just around the corner and with Targeted Probe and Educate (TPE), as well as the Review Choice Demonstration (RCD), agencies are at increased risk with poor revenue cycle or documentation management practices. This session will take a deep look into best practices for Revenue Cycle teams.
