This Month's Hot Topic: The Medicare Advantage Battle

Home Health and Hospices alike are becoming more and more inundated with Medicare Advantage payer referrals.  Agencies must navigate the roadmap of whether to contract with these plans or remain out of network.  This session will bring a deeper understanding of the key elements of establishing contracts with MA plans and the keys to renegotiating rates after you are in network.
