Medicare Home Health Billing Series, Part 1 – Intake, Orders, Prebill Audits
The Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM) is effective January 1, 2020. This is the most massive change to the home care industry reimbursement structure since the introduction of the current Prospective Payment System (PPS) in October 2000. The new payment model dramatically impacts agency operations, processes, and performance. Agencies must develop and implement plans to successfully transition to PDGM. This workshop will discuss key areas, strategies, and processes in preparing an agency for PDGM. This workshop will have focus on changes to the 30-day payment model which will bring significant back-office changes, specific to the claims processing and collections.
Summarize key areas of agency operations impacting the Revenue Cycle under PDGM.
- Discuss necessary modifications to the intake and referral process under PDGM, including Face to Face Requirements
- Review Order Management
- Review significant pieces of the Pre Bill Audit Process
Medicare Home Health Billing Series, Part 2 – Billing & Collecting RAPs & Final Claims
PDGM brings many changes to the Billing process, including almost doubling the volume of claims as compared to 2019 that will be sent and multiple changes to the data on the claims. The billing volume for 75% of the current Medicare episodes is likely going to DOUBLE under PDGM. With RAPs and Finals being required every 30 days instead of 60, agencies may need to expand their Revenue Cycle teams.
This webinar will cover details regarding the actual billing changes that will need to occur under PDGM. This webinar will take you through details of billing under PDGM and will review the process that the Medicare MAC will go through to calculate the HIPPS code and pay the claims.
