Hospice Billing Series - Part 1 – October 20th - (8:30a – 10:00a) 

The 2023 Hospice Rule will likely bring changes in reimbursement as well as the content of other regulatory clarifications.  New and experienced hospice billers periodically need a review of eligibility requirements and recent reimbursement and election clarifications.  This session will examine eligibility verifications, Election Statement and Addendum and Notice of Election requirements under recent regulatory updates. It will walk through the Late Notice of Election and the exceptions process of appeal.  A comprehensive review of all eligibility requirements, all aspects of dealing with Election statement changes and all things related to the Notice of Election will be included. 

Hospice Billing Series - Part 2 – October 27th - (8:30a – 10:00a)

Recent years have been filled with updates to the Hospice Medicare Billing regulations.  Accurate monthly claims and understanding of the navigation surrounding the edits and errors is key to getting paid correctly and timely.  This webinar will review the step-by-step through these changes. It will also provide examples of how hospices have successfully dealt with these changes and are effectively conducting physician billing. Claims issues that are frequently a challenge will be discussed.

Hospice Billing Series - Part 3 – November 3rd - (8:30a – 10:00a)

Face-to-Face requirements, physician billing, and the aggregate cap self-reporting requirement are a few among many of the daily reimbursement related challenges.  A review of specific physician billing codes for palliative care will also be addressed to expand your agency's knowledge of palliative care reimbursement. In addition, the current HIS transmission requirements and the impact of noncompliance on reimbursement will be covered.  Lastly, medical review denials and how the PEPPER reports affect your hospice will be reviewed.
