Product Description

Get the latest on Medicare's home health claims corrections -- and much more.

Your agency's billing just got a lot more difficult. You've surely had claims that didn't pay correctly the first time, but Medicare's February 2009 claims corrections are more than usual. Prepare for the onslaught of "corrected" claims and get the reimbursement you deserve by tuning in to this 1-hour audio conference with expert speaker Aaron Little, CPA. He'll also give you vital updates on the transition from RHHIs to Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) -- and what this means for your billing operations.

  • Get a status update on claims corrections that Medicare implemented in February 2009. 
  • Learn how to verify your episode payment corrections. Plus: Tips for analyzing episode payment variances, so you can avoid problems in the future.

  • To which MAC has your agency been assigned? You'll get the answer. 
  • How to identify the paid HIPPS codes.
