Palmetto GBA is pleased to announce our 2020 Home Health Workshop Series “Hitting the Target with Medicare.” These workshops are designed to equip home health providers and their staff with the tools they need to be successful with Medicare billing, coverage and documentation requirements.

These workshops will provide insight for home health agency staff at all levels.
