The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recently announced its decision to move forward with the Review Choice Demonstration (RCD) program for home health services in the face of the worsening COVID-19 pandemic.
The initial choice selection period began in North Carolina and Florida on August 3, 2020 and will end on August 17, 2020. The choice selection period for Ohio’s second review cycle also began August 3, 2020 and will end on August 17, 2020.
Following these choice selection periods, home health claims in all demonstration states (Illinois, Ohio, Texas, North Carolina, and Florida) with billing periods beginning on or after August 31, 2020 will be subject to review under the requirements of the choice selected. This includes pre-claim review, prepayment review, and postpayment review.
This webinar is being planned in order to give practical, real-life help to home care agencies tackle the RCD hurdle. This will not just be a high-level review of RCD. Instead, we will take a deep dive into the common problem areas associated with RCD in the states that have already implemented the RCD demo. Please join us safely online to learn how to decrease the hazards of non-affirmation and claim denials. Speaker DeAnn Briscoe, BSN, RN, COS-C will explore common areas which trigger non-affirmations or claim denials in the RCD process. She will also share strategies from Texas, Ohio and Illinois to increase your success in the medical review process of RCD.
Of course, it will be a wonderful scenario if RCD is further delayed until the current public health emergency is behind us, but we cannot assume that will happen! The time to prepare is unfortunately now!
