Product Description

The OIG has identified physician billing as potential program vulnerability and has "encouraged" CMS to continue to monitor. 

 When a Medicare beneficiary elects their hospice benefit, they waive all rights to Medicare Part B for services related to the treatment and management of their terminal illness except for the services of the independent attending physician.

Ensuring your hospice has a basic understanding of this concept and the processes around physician billing for hospice beneficiaries is important.

Join Roseanne Berry when she will discuss operational practices regarding determination of the attending physician, communication with the physician's offices, collaboration between patient care and the hospice billing office.

You’ll get clarification of terms such as related and unrelated, administrative versus professional, and an understanding about the role of the Nurse Practitioner in hospice

Take a look at what’s covered:

  • OIG risk area and 2010 report on Questionable Billing Practices for Physician Services for Hospice Beneficiaries
  • Role of the hospice Medical Director
  • Consulting physicians and the responsibility of hospice in billing for these services
  • Operational practices to consider to ensure good processes
  • Physician billing as a part of your compliance program

This session will focus on the principles surrounding physician billing and not specific coding issues.

Who should attend? Administrators, patient care managers, directors of patient care services, QAPI coordinators, compliance officers.
