    The 2018 Final Home Health Payment Rule and the Potential Impact of HHGM

    Webinar

    Wednesday, December 20, 2017

    2:00 –  3:30 pm CST **

    ** Recording available for those unable to participate live.


    Overview:  The Final Home Health Payment Rule for 2018 was released November 1, and even though the Home Health Groupings Module (HHGM) was NOT FINALIZED at this time, implementation may still be on the horizon in 2019 or 2020. Industry expert Melinda Gaboury will provide updates on what to expect in 2018, as well as how HHGM would affect you if finalized in later years.

    The 2018 Final Rule for Home Health will have a major impact on agencies, including rate changes for 2018 Home Health PPS, changes to the Value Based Purchasing Pilot, and numerous considerations for HHQRP changes.

    If finalized in 2019 or later, under HHGM, the 60-day episode of care is replaced with a 30-day period of payment and patients are placed into one of 144 payment groups. Low Utilization Payment Adjustments (LUPA) will exist in the HHGM, but there will be multiple ways to calculate versus the current standard. All this and more will be addressed in this must hear webinar.


    Objectives:

    • Detail new PPS rates & changes to case mix weights for 2018
    • List core changes to the PPS system if HHGM is finalized in 2019 or 2020
    • Document changes to the Home Health Quality Reporting Program (HHQRP)

    Meet the Speaker:  Melinda Gaboury is the CEO of Healthcare Provider Solutions, which provides financial, reimbursement, clinical and cost reporting services to the home care, hospice and rehabilitation therapy industries. Prior to the inception of Medicare PPS, she began researching, auditing and reviewing processes with OASIS, ICD-10 Coding and clinical documentation. She has developed and taught clinician and billing Medicare PPS trainings in a variety of venues.

    2018 Home Health Conditions of Participation
    Interpretive Guide

    Webinar Series

    January 9 and 10, 2018

    2:00 –  3:30 pm CST **

    ** Recording available  (see details below)

    Overview:  The long-awaited revised Home Health Conditions of Participation will be fully implemented January 13, 2018. This two-part webinar series will provide a review of the final version of the Interpretive Guide. Just as the final HH CoP Rule provided updates and changes over the Interim rule, the final version of the Interpretive Guide, due to be released by the end of December 2017, is expected to address the unanswered questions with the draft version released October 27, 2017.

    Join us from the comfort of your own home health agency as we dive deep into the final Home Health CoP Interpretive Guidelines.  It is important that every home health agency be familiar with the Interpretive Guidelines to be prepared for how and what official surveyors will look at when they come to your home health agency to determine compliance with home health certification requirements. The importance of knowing the content and expectations for these surveys is imperative whether your agency has deemed status through an accreditation organization or a survey by your state agency.  Remember, even though you may receive deemed status from an approved accreditation program, your individual state survey agency may do validation surveys behind that accreditation survey or complaint investigations to ensure the HHA is always in compliance with the Conditions of Participation.
