About the Event

This two-day workshop will take agencies through the current state of the Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM) and move through all the aspects of Medicare home health reimbursement.

Day 1 Virtual Medicare PDGM Workshop

The PDGM has brought many changes to home health and the PDGM is not all that reimbursement is made up of. In addition to working through the fine details of the PDGM changes, the workshop will also cover extensive examples for Low Utilization Payment Adjustments (LUPAs), Partial Episode Payments (PEPs), and outlier adjustments. There will be a discussion of pre-billing claim reviews and the significance of them.

Day-to-Day Revenue Cycle Under the Patient-Driven Groupings Model with COVID-19 Updates
• Evaluate the PDGM Structure
• Detail the significant impact of intake on revenue cycle
• Health Insurance Prospective Payment System (HIPPS) code and episode exceptions review
• LUPA, PEP, and outlier calculations
• Describe the process for effectively auditing a chart for purposes of identifying pre-bill issues, including non-routine supplies
• Details of billing Requests for Anticipated Payment (RAPs) and final claims
• OASIS and ICD-10 coding impact on reimbursement

Day 2 Virtual Medicare PDGM Workshop

The impact of OASIS, ICD-10 coding, and medical review programs have the potential to more directly impact reimbursement than some of the other aspects of the PDGM, and this workshop will get you up to date on all of that as well. Additionally, with cash flow being one of the gravest areas of concern for providers in recent months, this workshop will take you through the basics of cash flow projections and how best to make that work in your organization.
