Every home health agency wants to submit a compliant claim to Medicare for payment. In your haste to get the bill out the door and reimbursement in the door, are you triggering red flags in coding and OASIS that could result in denials?
Every home health agency wants to submit a compliant claim to Medicare for payment. But in our haste to “get the bill out the door” and reimbursement “in the door” are red flags in coding and OASIS inadvertently triggering selection of our records for review and possible denials? It’s not just the codes and OASIS M items that can result in a denial of payment. Failure to adequately document the physician face to face, skilled services, homebound status, and the focus of the plan of care can also put our claims at risk and are areas of increased scrutiny by RACs and the OIG in 2013.
Join this enlightening event presented by expert speaker who will provide you know-how on 2013 OIG Home Health Work Plan and also provide you the list of RAC home health issues.
Here's a look at what will be covered:
Who should attend? Home health clinicians responsible for completing OASIS and the POC, home health coders, OASIS and documentation quality reviewers, agency owners, administrators, and clinical directors, agency compliance staff.
