Do you know who can best indicate why a patient is homebound? If you work in home health -- you should …

Homebound status is a basic Medicare requirement for home health coverage. If you can't clearly establish it, Medicare won't pay.

In this 1-hour event, our pro Judy Adams, RN, BSN, HCS-D, COS-C will review the definitions and conditions that establish homebound status - in detail - and its impact on home health coverage.

In this era of increased home health service scrutiny, you can't afford to miss a single point of documentation. Let Judy Adams show you everything you need to have to support homebound status, and what you may be missing.

This Session Will Include:

  • Homebound status - what is it? The official Medicare definition
  • Real-world examples of documentation that illustrates homebound status
  • The good and bad: Case examples of both proper and poor documentation used to evaluate homebound status
  • Special situations: How they impact homebound status and Medicare coverage -- including driving, absences from home, patients who attend day care or outpatient services …
  • Recommendations: Processes for agencies to ensure homebound status is properly addressed in the medical record
