Hospice billing staff are extremely valuable in the assurance that you are maximizing reimbursement in the most timely manner.  Medicare billing regulations can be overwhelming and clarifications are continuous.  Hospice Reimbursement is driven by excellent care and documentation and a billing staff that can bring it home. This three-part series will establish and/or cement the foundation for hospice staff that need to have a full understanding of Medicare regulations. Medicare eligibility verifications, field-by-field detail on Notice of Election and claim forms, and changes to the billing requirements will be covered. This series will review regulations for billing all hospice services, face-to-face encounters, and home health providing care while a patient is on service with hospice. Hospice information including the aggregate cap self-report, palliative care billing basics, and the latest on HIS updates and transmission requirements will be emphasized. If you are part of hospice revenue-cycle team, this webinar series is a must!
