Hospice Billing Series 2023
Hospice Billing Series - Part 1 – September 15th 2023 - (11:30a – 1:00p)
The 2024 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 – September 18th 2023 - (11:30a – 1:00p)
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 this process. It will also provide examples of how hospices have successfully dealt with these changes and are effectively conducting physician billing. This session will provide an overview of the billing requirements when the patient is enrolled in a Medicare Advantage Plan participating in the VBID Model.

Hospice Billing Series - Part 3 – September 21st 2023 - (11:30a – 1:00p)
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 and the palliative benefit for patients in the VBID model will be highlighted. HIS transmission requirements and the increased penalty for noncompliance will be covered.  Lastly, medical review denials and how the PEPPER reports affect your hospice will be reviewed.
