About the Event

Now that the new year is here, if your RAP is not submitted and accepted in five days, your home health agency will face a hefty penalty. Adjusting to this time frame will require workflow and policy changes, even as agencies are still dealing with COVID-19 response.

Attend this webinar to get a step-by-step plan for constructing a speedy workflow. You’ll be able to put together all the pieces needed for full and accurate payment—including the correct HIPPS code—without compromising quality patient care.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

Avoid payment penalties related to untimely RAPs
Implement a workflow policy for timely RAPs
Develop a smooth process with your EMR vendor that includes triggers for possible penalties
Adopt a tracking mechanism to ensure RAPs are submitted and accepted
Prevent more payment penalties when the case is a LUPA


Review of CMS requirements for RAP submissions
How the timing of OASIS and coding fits in
Strategies to work with your EMR to smooth the process
Ways to track all of the pieces using dashboards
Discussion of how LUPA periods could lead to even more penalties
