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 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.
