Changes to the Medicare Hospice Regulations have occurred over the past few years and continue.  Is your hospice thriving?  Do you know where your agency stands with the PEPPER targets?  Has the Value Based Insurance Design model (VBID) impacted your hospice?

Be among the elite group of hospice professionals that are current on all Hospice Medicare reimbursement related regulations.  This workshop will lay a concrete foundation for hospice billers and any hospice staff that need a clearer understanding of the Medicare regulations.  This workshop will include Medicare Notice of Election and claim forms detail requirements. 

The 2024 Claims Requirements will be detailed including a review of the levels of care Hospice rates.  The workshop will include the CMS Targeted Probe & Educate details as well as other levels of medical review that are currently active for hospice.  The workshop will conclude with analyzing the PEPPER information and how hospices can work toward improvement in their scores.  If you play any part in the responsibility of reimbursement in your hospice this workshop is a must.
