Avoid denials and deficiencies by learning how to avoid the traps of the qualifiers if you’re homebound, skilled need or under the care of a physician. Learn how to build the plan of care From the OASIS and evaluations so that it is customized for the patient’s episode. This session by expert speaker Sharon Litwin will help you to build a strong foundation for the homecare episode of care.
The Foundation for homecare has rarely changed over the years. Medicare regulations have three main qualifying services for homecare and they continue to be a problem for clinicians- the patients must be under the care of a physician, homebound, and have skilled need. These are troublesome areas as there are often gray areas which then fall under scrutiny by auditors and surveyors. Ensure you are building a strong foundation for your homecare episode by learning the rules for each of the qualifiers. Sharon will also discuss Face to Face, The COPs, and other areas critical to the foundation.
