Hospice PEPPER Reports & Impact on Medical Review
Thursday, May 16, 2024 (11:00 AM - 12:00 PM) (EDT)
This program will take agencies through the winding road of Medicare scrutiny. While billing the Medicare benefit and getting paid is relatively easy, there is always a risk of things being reviewed at some point. You need to know what you can do to avoid denials.
Participants will be able to define the different levels of medical review and outline the structure of how to respond to any level of medical review that may occur. This session will also discuss PEPPER reports and other data analysis that agencies will need to review to ensure that their risk from medical review is limited.
We will review the Top 5 Medical Review Denial reasons and how to avoid them. Don’t be caught in the comfortable position of believing that everything is okay. Attendees will take away information that will assist in assuring that your hospice truly is accurately documenting.
