Product Description

Why stay in the dark on home health reimbursement questions?

If you’re even the slightest bit foggy on the how the Medicare home health prospective payment system (PPS) works, you could be costing your home health agency much-deserved reimbursement -- and that’s something your agency can’t afford these days when every penny counts.

Get your PPS training from expert speaker Michelle Enger, MBA, founder and CEO of Optimal Reimbursement Strategies, LLC, during this 1-hour audioconference. She'll discuss PPS eligibility requirements, important PPS acronyms, how OASIS affects reimbursement, how to use the common working file (CWF), and much more!

Here’s a sampling of what you’ll learn:

  • How to determine a patient’s homebound status. It’s not as complicated as you think.
  • The difference between Medicare eligibility and eligibility for the home health benefit: Criteria you’ll need to make a decision.
  • Learn how OASIS answers translate into the HHRG scores that drive reimbursement.
  • The PPS acronyms you should know like the back of your hand.
  • All the facts about 60-day episodes, RAP versus final claim payments, and ADRs.
  • Navigate your way around the CWF to verify beneficiary status and process your claims.
