Event's details
December 02, 2014

Time:01:00 PM - 02:30 PM

It is prudent that EVERY hospice program more closely monitor its aggregate CAP status throughout the course of the year. Accuracy and appropriate timing of the CAP calculation play a critical role in minimizing interim payments, as does knowledge of a hospice's options related to Extended Repayment Schedules (ERS). This session will provide attendees with general knowledge and skills to effectively monitor their aggregate CAP, and manage CAP reporting as well as any associated CAP liabilities.
