Hospice Documentation Under Scrutiny

Wednesday, March 8, 2023 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Make no mistake about it, the Hospice Honeymoon Period has come and gone regarding the trust level that CMS has in our provision and documentation of services. In the past few months we have assisted hospices dealing with UPIC Audits, SMRC Audits, Targeted Probe and Educate Audits. The OIG recently issued a scathing report referring to hospice survey deficiencies and citing numerous instances of patients being harmed due to lack of compliance with the Conditions of Participation. This program is designed to inform Hospice Administrators, Physicians, Clinicians and Stakeholders with practical guidance in relation to compliant documentation of services. Friends this is an “Ounce of Prevention” that is needed by all organizations. Please join SMART Healthcare Compliance Resources, LLC presenters Randy Forrest, Partner and Lista Clark, RN for this timely and informative training session.

Hospice: A Changing Landscape

Thursday, March 9, 2023 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Hospice became a Medicare benefit in 1983. The current payment system is based on a demonstration project that HCFA conducted from 1980 to 1982 of 26 not-for-profit hospices. The Affordable Care Act made way for reform of the system after 10-1-2013. CMS continues to add reporting on claims (CR8358) and finalized major reform to the cost reporting forms. In the 2019 Proposed rule for hospice, CMS is proposing to rebase the CHC, GIP and IRC rates in budget neutral manner, which will result in a reduction in the RHC rate. This training is designed to get you up-to-date, provide best practice guidance, and prepare all providers to thrive in the Changing Landscape of Hospice:
