Weatherbee Hospice Regulatory 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?

  • How to read and interpret the PEPPER report?

  • The regulatory requirements and the compliance challenges associated with providing hospice care in facilities?

  • How to assure compliance with QAPI and reporting requirements?

  • Explore Local Coverage Determination (LCD) guidelines and their affect on payment and compliant documentation;

  • Explain proper use of hospice assessment tools to improve documentation of evaluate patient eligibility; and,

  • Review Targeted Probe and Educate (TPE), Supplemental Medical Review Contractor (SMRC), and other audits.

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