WEBINAR DETAILS

While billing for the Medicare benefit and receiving payment is relatively easy, there is always the risk of being reviewed. This webinar will take hospice staff through the winding road of Medicare scrutiny and explain how to avoid denials. Learn how to define and respond to any level of active medical review, including UPIC, SMRC, MAC, ADR, and RAC. This webinar will also cover PEPPER reports and other data analyses that agencies should review to limit risk of medical review. In addition, it will detail specific PEPPER data to show how your hospice compares to others in the state.
