Product Description

Are you meeting all the conditions of participation? Here’s how to know for sure.

Home health agencies, hospices and referring physicians may be feeling the pain of increased regulatory pressure this year, but if there’s one thing they should be especially vigilant about, it’s patients’ care planning. Let your guard down on your care plan oversight billing compliance, and you’ll definitely feel it in your bottom line. 

In just 60 minutes, Brenda Chidester, CPC, CCS-P, a nationally recognized coding and billing expert, will bring you up to speed on what care plan oversight entails, explain what you have to do to meet all the conditions of coverage, outline which services do and do not count toward the crucial 30 minute threshold, and help you chose the right Medicare and third-party codes to avoid denials.

Who should attend: Physicians who treat home health and hospice patients, physician office billing staff, home health agency administrators and billing staff, and hospice administrators and billing staff.
 
Here's what you will learn:

  • Find out what services can qualify a patient for care plan oversight.
  • The physician furnished 30 minutes of care plan oversight in a calendar month. Find out what else you'll need to meet the conditions of coverage.
  • Charts, reports, telephone calls, team conferences: How ALL these services count.
  • Can you include informal consults with health professionals not involved in the patient’s care? The answer may surprise you.
  • Fine tune your G0181 and G0182 coding and finesse and your CPT third party coding for swift payment.
  • Have additional questions? You have the floor with the speaker during an interactive Q&A!
