OCHCH is proud to partner with the Minnesota HomeCare Association to bring you this webinar. Medicare Advantage Plans may or may not have changes in 2020 in regard to PDGM.

Program Objectives:
  1. Detail the changes to the billing process under PDGM for Medicare Advantage.
  2. Detail the specifics of successfully collecting under the Medicare Advantage program.
  3. Review the process from Intake through to billing for successful Medicare Advantage billing and collections.

With the implementation of PDGM, many have experienced new issues.
  1. When your patient transfers into a facility, which OASIS do you complete and is it a SOC or a ROC you complete when they come back?
  2. What if the patient is still in that facility as the new payment period starts?
  3. What is the new process for OASIS DC?
  4. Is there a requirement for updating for new diagnoses, changed diagnoses, and resolved diagnoses for a new payment period even if there isn’t an OASIS?
  5. What changes in diagnosis coding will improve your opportunities for success in PDGM?
Lisa will answer these questions and more in this 2 part webinar!
