Don’t Miss this Crucial 5-Part Webinar Series on Maintenance Therapy!
We are excited to announce that Kornetti and Krafft, experts in the realm of therapy, are presenting a five-part series of webinars with NAHC on an area of great need in the home care area: Maintenance Therapy.

CMS has proposed a big rate cut for home health agencies in 2020,  based on unproven assumptions about provider behavior. A bill in Congress  would prevent CMS from using faulty assumptions to impose rate cuts. Use NAHC’s Legislative Action Center to contact your representatives in Congress and ask them to support this legislation and protect home health patients and providers today. Congress can protect home health, but we need your voice to make it happen. 

The 2018 Home Care and Hospice Conference and Expo was a huge success. The best and brightest in the industry spent three days learning, networking, and becoming better leaders for the companies and their communities. Have a look at what was perhaps the best NAHC Conference ever!

Improving the Accuracy of Hospice Cost Reporting:  The What and The Why of Recent Changes and New Level I Edits

November 7, 2018
1 – 2:30 p.m. Eastern

A CMS overhaul of hospice cost reports means significantly greater detail of costs, as well as a breakdown by level of care, and unless a hospice’s cost report successfully passes Level I edits it will not be accepted for processing.  ALL hospice cost reports should meet these minimum requirements to help ensure greater data accuracy and more informed hospice payment policy decisions.

In this webinar, a leading industry cost report expert will describe:

  • The most recent cost report changes and how they will lead to more accurate financial reporting
  • The rationale behind each of the new Level I edits and why all hospices should have costs applicable to these categories
  • The vital importance of proper hospice accounting and cost reporting practices to future hospice payment policy decisions
