The Home Health PPS Regulation for implementation January 2015 has brought about changes to the PPS System, but most importantly the threat of more cuts in reimbursement. Knowledgeable billers and collectors are extremely important to agencies thriving in the current system, so do not miss this needed education! Be the first to be current on all Medicare billing regulations implemented in 2015. This workshop will lay a concrete foundation for home health billing, as well as, financial staff by giving billers a more effective approach to the Medicare PPS regulation, conducting Medicare verifications and understanding adjustments. We will discuss Medicare verifications on patients with HIQH screen examples & review adjacent episode calculations - field by field on claim forms. We will review the process of auditing a pre-bill for final claim purposes, both Medicare and Non-Medicare Payers, and review the details of billing for Non-Routine Supplies using billing guidelines. More and more scrutiny of agency records has been taking place in the form of ADR and RAC reviews. This session will identify the current risks and outline steps to manage that risk. If you are part of the revenue cycle in your agency this session is a must.

Course Objectives: 6.0 Continuing Education
