Product Description

With an All Time Rise in Denials in Homecare Agencies and Conditional Level Deficiencies, Learn How to be Compliant to Regulations.

There are more denials than ever in homecare agencies, and the conditional level deficiencies are also at an all time high. Paying back your reimbursement and/or paying daily monetary sanctions are causing fear among senior leadership of homecare agencies. Keeping up with the latest regulations from CMS, MACs, accrediting bodies, OIG, third party auditors and more is so difficult to do in the fast changing environment. Expert speaker Sharon Litwin will simplify the meaning of the main regulatory areas causing denials and sanctions through her conference.

The conference is going to help you understand areas which generally lead to denials – including FTF (face to face), Homebound, Skilled Need, ABNs (Advanced Beneficiary Notice) etc. Monetary sanctions are also been given for Repeat standard and conditional level deficiencies. The session will further help you understand sanctions and conditions and ways to make yourself less vulnerable to deficiencies and sanctions.  At the end of the presentation you will get various power point handouts and OIG FTF studies reports.

Session Highlights:

It is increasingly difficult to understand and comply with the laws and regulations in the homecare industry. Compliance is the key to a success for homecare and hospice agencies. Monetary and Management Sanctions, Face to Face compliance and denials, ABNs, Homebound and skilled needs will be some of the subjects discussed at this informative and interactive session.
