Product Description

Here’s the new information you need to get your hospice claims reimbursed for 2008.

Beginning with hospice services provided on and after Jan. 1, 2008, you must include new information on your hospice claims to receive payment. Background: Since the inception of the Medicare hospice program in 1983, CMS has required hospice agencies to provide only a limited amount of information on claims. But CMS has decided that this mere snippet of information restricts payment accuracy -- and has begun to carefully analyze hospice services.

So we’re here to tell you exactly what you need to get paid in 2008. Join hospice billing expert, M. Aaron Little, CPA, in this 1-hour teleconference, and prepare your agency’s processes to bill claims that accurately represent the newly required reportable services.

Who should attend: CEOs, executive directors, administrators, CFOs, finance directors, controllers, billing staff, regulatory personnel and IT staff involve in billing and related system edits.

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

  • Exactly which services CMS will require you to report.
  • How to code this new information correctly on your claims.
  • Not sure if a patient encounter is considered a visit? You’ll learn the criteria.
  • What to do when a patient changes locations during a reporting period.
  • Avoid delays in cash flow: Get all the details on averting a reimbursement crunch.
  • Ways to avoid potential payment errors due to incorrect claim coding.
  • Have lingering questions on all these changes? Ask Aaron directly in an interactive Q&A!
