Hospice Eligibility & Documentation

Thursday, February 8, 2024 (11:00 AM - 12:00 PM) (EST)


Will your hospice documentation withstand the scrutiny of a Medical Review Audit?

We are seeing an increase in Hospice Medical Reviews, and it is not going away anytime soon. Are you ready?

This webinar will help clinicians support continued hospice eligibility for a six month or less prognosis with the use of Defensible Documentation.

You will learn how to go beyond the LCDs ensuring the patient assessment includes clinical objective measurements with changes over time to support the disease trajectory.

Examples will be provided on how to drill down to the details and characteristics that differentiate terminal and chronic patients with the same diagnosis to avoid claim denials under medical review.
