2021 Palmetto Home Health and Hospice (Virtual) Workshops

2021 Palmetto Home Health and Hospice (Virtual) Workshops
Palmetto GBA's 2021 Home Health and Hospice Workshop series is coming to Illinois. These virtual workshops are designed for home health and hospice providers and their staff to equip them with the tools they need to be successful with Medicare billing, coverage and documentation requirements.

These workshops are designed to equip home health and hospice providers with the tools they need to be successful with Medicare billing, coverage and documentation requirements.

These workshops will provide insight for home health agency and hospice agency staff at all levels. However, we do 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 by accessing the Learning and Education link under the Education/Events 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 analyses and some hints and tips as to why these errors occur. Palmetto GBA’s goal is to educate providers on the most up-to-date information and apply skillful techniques to their documentation and billing practices.
