Boot Camps

How well does your staff understand the rules and regulations that govern the provision of, and payment for, hospice care? Do they know:

  • The payment-related implications associated with the election, certification/recertification, physician narrative, face-to-face encounter, and plan of care?
  • The regulatory requirements associated with the interdisciplinary assessment process and documentation to support hospice eligibility?
  • The importance of determining whether medications and other services are related to the patient's terminal diagnosis, and how to document accordingly?
  • The required elements to support the billing of higher levels of care?
  • The regulatory requirements and the compliance challenges associated with providing hospice care in facilities?
  • How to assure compliance with QAPI and reporting requirements?

If the answer to any of the above is not a resounding "ABSOLUTELY," then your team needs Weatherbee's Hospice Regulatory Boot Camp!  

Consider registering for the optional 3rd day, Striving for Documentation Success. Compliance and high quality patient care go hand in hand. In this optional 3rd day, we:

  • Review documentation language to identify opportunities for improvement;
  • Learn strategies for training staff; and,
  • Explore LCD guidelines and assessment tools to improve documentation of patient eligibility.

The afternoon is an intense focus on responding to clinical record requests to mitigate further risk and improve chances for payment.
