While leadership and management deal with results of target audit probes such as the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) probes, ZPIC/UPIC (Zone Program Integrity Contractor/Unified
Program Integrity Contractor) audits, and Recovery Audit Contractor (RAC) reviews, the battle for Medicare coverage is won or lost at the clinician level. “If it wasn’t charted, it wasn’t done” is the old adage, but “If it was charted wrong, it won’t be paid” is the new version in the Medical Review world of home health. This presentation combines 11 key Medicare rules and regulations your staff need to know, need to document, and need to follow so that any medical review does not take back the visits and cause financial hardships for your agency.
Even experienced staff need to have a clear and present knowledge and integrate these requirements into their charting. How these requirements or lack of these show up in denial explanation letters is
also used to demonstrate the importance of charting these right the first time. Addressing these as part of agency culture is an investment in prevention.
