Product Description

Don't wait - prepare your hospice BEFORE you're selected for Medical Review.

Medical review is an important part of the Medicare Integrity Program, and every provider should be prepared. CMS has contracted with MACs, RACs, ZPICs and CERTS to prevent improper payments before a claim is processed and also, to identify and recoup improper payments after the claim is processed.

Medical review for hospices focuses on Medicare coverage requirements and suspect claims could cause payment denials or even demands for repayment.

Join our hospice compliance expert, Roseanne Berry, MSN, RN for this 1-hour event that will get you prepared for medical review and teach you how to properly and effectively respond to medical review and ADR requests.
