Product Description

Insights on the Revised Face to Face Regulations and Effective Strategies for Compliance.

The FY2015 PPS Final rule implemented a major change to the face to face requirement – it eliminated the narrative.  However, in its place agencies are now dependent upon the physician's documentation to support the certification.  This will require agencies to carefully consider face to face compliance. This session by expert speaker Robert W. Markette, Jr. will review the issues created by the new face to face regulation, the status of litigation related to the face to face requirement and other update, including the status of the companionship services exemption. 

Robert will also review the new COPs and discuss key changes contained in them. You will learn the requirement of the revised face to face regulations and get various strategies to comply with the requirement. Plus, you will know how to review ways in which you can help physicians prepare for the new requirements.

Session Highlights:

  • Why the elimination of the narrative may not be as big a relief as hoped for
  • How agencies can address dependence on the physician's documentation
  • Ways to try to ensure the physician's documentation is sufficient, without upsetting the physician
  • How to prepare for audits under the new face to face requirements
  • Why educating the physician will be extremely important
  • The current status of the companionship exemption litigation and what it means for you
  • Review wage and hour compliance strategies
  • Review key changes in the proposed new COPs or the final if they have been published.
