Would you like to receive payments for the services provided to Medicare beneficiaries? To receive payments for these services, you must ensure compliance with two technical requirements of the hospice Medicare benefit: the election of benefits (EOB) and the certification of terminal illness (CTI).
Join this session, where expert speaker Susan Balfour, BA, RN, will provide you with a comprehensive review of the requirements, specific risk areas and the common stumbles for each requirement. Susan will also review the findings in the OIG report, “Hospices Should Improve Their Election Statements and Certifications of Terminal Illness.” You will learn how to access the actual regulations and to identify the risk areas. In addition, you will learn to feel confident in your understanding of the hospice Medicare regulations governing certifications and election, and learn how to evaluate your agency processes and avoid the common pitfalls.
