Documention Webinar Series: 4-part Lunch-n-Learn - February 22, April 20, May 17 & June 15

Documentation Webinar Series

CE Credits: 1 contact hour for completion of each webinar

More and more auditors – MAC, ZPIC, MIC, RAC, OIG, etc. – are reviewing medical records of hospice patients to ensure that documentation supports the services that are billed. In addition, state and federal surveys are becoming more thorough and the Office of Inspector General has recommended that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) instruct surveyors to spend more time on certain aspects of compliance. This series of webinars will provide in-depth education on all aspects of documentation – eligibility for hospice, eligibility for a higher level of care, technical components of certification and compliance with the Medicare Conditions of Participation (CoPs).
