Pre-Conference A: Revenue Cycle: PDGM compliance through proper coding
During this one-day preconference you’ll receive expert guidance on how to fully and accurately code in PDGM — ensuring you understand the codes that are no longer accepted as primary diagnoses and those that drive payment so that your agency is paid accurately for care provided during 30-day payment periods. Walk away with fool-proof strategies on how billers and coders can work together, understand what documentation is required to support proper reimbursement and avoid regulatory scrutiny, and a look into key PDGM data trends that illustrate how coding behavior has and hasn’t changed as a result of the pandemic and PDGM. Finally, wrap-up with an interactive session in which you’ll work through scenarios to understand coding’s impact on payment. Every team member plays a vital part in keeping the revenue cycle moving smoothly – understand how a coder’s role is most critical!
Pre-Conference B: Compliance Best Practices from Intake to Discharge
During this one-day preconference you’ll receive expert guidance on how to implement processes and documentation strategies from intake to discharge to ensure compliance. Join our expert speakers and learn how to gather accurate information and detailed documentation at every step, establish processes that safeguard claims and prevent surveyor scrutiny, address and avoid top claim denials and survey deficiencies, and address the top 10 documentation mistakes before they result in a denied claim or ADR. Finally wrap-up with an interactive session in which you’ll work through scenarios to ensure you’re securing accurate and compliant documentation. Thorough and reliable processes have never been more important for the success of your agency!
