Palmetto: Home Health and Hospice

Palmetto: Home Health and Hospice

Palmetto GBA is pleased to announce the 2017 Home Health and Hospice Workshop series - "Getting it Right the First Time!" These workshops are designed for home health and hospice providers, and their staff, to equip them with tools they need to be successful with Medicare billing, coverage and documentation requirements.

These workshops will provide insight for home health agency and hospice staff at all levels; however, we suggest that providers who are new to Medicare or have new staff attend our online learning courses for beginners at www.PalmettoGBA.com/hhh. Basic billing and other online educational resources can be found in the Self-Paced Learning section by selecting the Learning and Education link under the Browse Topics option at the top of the page. During the workshop series, Palmetto GBA will provide information related to the most common errors identified through a variety of data analysis and some hints and tips on the reasons why these errors occur. Palmetto GBA’s ultimate goal is to have educated and astute providers who know how to accurately and skillfully apply the information they learn to their documentation and billing practices!
