Product Description

Get a complete Know-How, about one of the most widely misunderstood rule, which results in numerous fraud and violation cases every year

The face to face requirement for home health and hospice was one of the fraud control measures contained in Health Care Reform.  The requirements of the rule are still not widely understood outside of home health and have led to a great deal of difficulty for providers. This seminar will provide a review of the face to face requirements for both home health and hospice. Also, it will show the difference and review what acceptable documentation looks like for face to face. Expert speaker, Robert W. Markette, Jr., CHC, will review the non-physician practitioner’s role, the physician’s role and if anything can be done to lessen the burden on physicians, while still maintaining compliance. He'll review a number of common misunderstandings as well as risk areas, including the potential for fraud and abuse violations.

In this power-packed event, Robert will review the rules’ requirements and show the ways to reduce the burden on physicians, without risking your reimbursement.
