If your agency has experienced payment recoupment due to increased CMS oversight, this presentation is for your clinical staff.

  • Support Medicare hospice eligibility and ongoing terminality with required documentation
  • Explain the benefits of working with the LCDs
  • Understand technical and eligibility requirements of the Medicare hospice benefit
  • Identify common deficiencies related to nursing and aide services
  • Recognize areas where nursing documentation commonly leads to payment denials

Part 2 of this five-part compliance series will focus on the roles of hospice RNs and aides. With continued CMS oversight, documentation starting with the initial assessment, comprehensive assessments, and ongoing visits must support patient eligibility for hospice. This presentation will address common compliance and documentation challenges, how to address them, and how to document terminality. It will review the Medicare hospice benefit with a focus on eligibility and how to support eligibility through assessment, LCD utilization, documentation, IDT participation, using the four levels of care, and discharging patients when needed. You’ll also learn about high-risk admissions, what triggers audits, and how to avoid them.
