Home Health Billing Webinar Series: Part 1 of 4

Home Health Billing Webinar Series: Part 1 of 4

Tuesday, December 13, 2022 (10:00 AM - 11:30 AM) (EST)

Description

The Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM) went into effect on January 1, 2020. This is the most significant change to the Medicare home health reimbursement structure since the introduction of the Prospective Payment System (PPS) in 2000. The new payment model has dramatically impacted agency operations, processes, and performance. 

January 2023 brings even more issues with rate changes for home health and the impending Home Health Value-Based Purchasing (HHVBP) nationwide expansion. This four-part webinar series will discuss key areas, strategies, and processes in assisting an agency in staying ahead of PDGM-related changes and reimbursement rates. This program will focus on best episode management and process improvement practices including the referral, intake, and scheduling processes, timely documentation, and physician and patient communication strategies — all of which are required to more tightly manage care within the 30-day payment period.

Attendees receive 1.5 continuing education units per webinar (6.0 for the full series) for skilled nursing, occupational therapy, and speech therapy per webinar.

Part 1: PDGM Model Review & Impact on Billing

The first part of this four-part series covers the following topics:

  • Key revenue cycle operations affected by the PDGM
  • Necessary modifications to the intake and referral process under the PDGM
  • Data to assist in determining the financial impacts of the PDGM on a home health agency
  • Specificity requirements of coding under the PDGM
  • Strategies for improved physician interaction to ensure timely 30-day billing
  • The importance of clinical review of each 30-day payment period under the PDGM

Series Schedule

Each of the webinars in the series will be held on Tuesdays at 10:00-11:30 AM ET on the following dates:
