Product Description

Master new reporting requirements for optimum supply reimbursement -- e.g. see how the highest NRS category could land you $551 per episode!

Your home health agency is probably still adjusting to the drastically new 2008 PPS system. Among the many changes came the un-bundling of non-routine medical supplies (NRS) -- a big deal to the home care industry, which has traditionally not paid enough attention to the procurement, utilization and billing of supplies since CMS initiated PPS. But that’s mainly because the original PPS model bundled supplies into the patient HHRG.
Now, PPS 2008 directly links clinical assessment to supply payment. And learning how to provide quality documentation oversight will be critical to ensure that you receive appropriate additional HHRG dollars AND NRS add-on dollars to cover the cost of supplies used for patient care. You can do just that in 1 hour with home health billing expert Lynda Laff, RN, BSN. She’ll show you the ropes of the new billing system as it pertains to supplies, as well as identify key processes home care administrators will need to implement to manage supply cost and revenue.

Who should attend: Administrators, financial managers, clinical directors and clinical managers in home health agencies.
