While the payment method for home health is changing in 2020, the underlying Medicare eligibility and coverage requirements are not.
This two-part presentation combines 11 key Medicare rules and regulations your staff need to know, need to document, and need to follow for maximum compliance in case of medical record reviews. In addition, knowing what constitutes skilled service and what needs to be documented will guide staff to improved record content at a time when efficiently providing needed visits in a cost-effective manner is more important than ever. Ensuring that every visit provided, whether by nursing, therapy, or dependent service, provides and documents skilled service is a key component to success in the Patient Drive Groupings Model (PDGM).
