The triple check process is a proactive method of ensuring that all information is accurate prior to submitting the UB04 to the Medicare program for payment. It is valuable to identify what may be “missing” in order to prepare the clinical record for the possibility of an audit by one of the many contractors that CMS had hired.
Even if your facility has a triple check program in place, this power-packed session will provide you with the essential knowledge that may help to improve your process.
Suggestions will be offered on how to meet: either as a group or individually and ultimately gather with the team to identify trends and patterns that interfere with accurate record keeping and generation of the Medicare bill.
Here are a few highlights of the session:
Who should attend?
MDS coordinators, business office, therapy personnel, and any other discipline in your facility that participates in the billing and MDS process.
