Two key federal laws regulate the financial relationships between agencies referral sources: the Anti-Kickback Statute and the Stark Law. After a refresher on the scope and applicability of these laws, this session will provide guidance on how to structure relationships with referring physicians, how to compensate sales and marketing personnel, and how to interact with hospital discharge planners, among others. Government enforcement in these areas makes headlines daily, making participation in this session all the more important.

Information on the Series

Beginning in May and continuing through December, NAHC will bring together the top experts in the industry to examine the most important legal topics in home care and hospice.

Home care and hospice is a highly regulated industry, as such, it forces providers to maintain a strong working knowledge of a bewildering array of legal issues just to stay in business — fortunately, NAHC has a solution. This 10-part webinar series offers an in-depth and practical analysis of the key legal topics every home care and hospice executive should understand.

It’s no longer a question of “if” you will be subject to a government audit or investigation, merely a question of “when.” So, prepare now to mitigate the damage and help avoid (or at least prolong) the inevitable. Unchecked billing errors can literally threaten the very existence of your organization. Learn what auditors will be looking for and how you can respond both in advance and during an investigation, whether it’s the OIG, DOJ, UPIC, ADR, or one of the many other alphabet soup agencies who may come knocking.

The Role and Benefits of Home Care in Adapting Homes

The Role and Benefits of Home Care in Adapting Homes

Monday, April 26, 2021
2:00-3:00pm Eastern

Register Now

Learn how home modifications for aging in place can expand the opportunity for a person’s home to be an effective base for health care. There is evidence that updated homes are safer which allows clients to remain clients longer, workers to suffer fewer injuries, and agencies to retain employees longer. Home care providers take varied approaches to updates including the development of assessment tools, making recommendations, offering home modifications in-house, and engaging in partnerships. There are barriers too. But there is no doubt home modifications are part of the future of home care.

NAHC President Bill Dombi will host this webinar featuring Kathy Dodd, a longtime leader in the home care industry, former NAHC board member, and CEO of Lifewise-CHM (Clinical Home Modifications), an innovative home modifications provider, and Louis Tenenbaum, one of the first contractors to specialize in modifications, now a recognized aging in place authority and advocate. Together, they will explore ways to get home updates done and how your agency can benefit from this next wave of in-home services.

The FY2022 Hospice Proposed Payment Rule

The FY2022 Hospice Proposed Payment Rule:
A Deep Dive into Its Implications for Hospice Payment and Quality

Thursday, April 22, 2021
1:00-2:30pm Eastern

Register Now

Late April 8, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released its proposed FY2022 Hospice Payment Rule containing a wide array of new policies that may shape the hospice landscape for years to come. These changes include:

  • revisions to the labor shares of the hospice payment rates;
  • updates to the hospice election statement addendum requirements;
  • inclusion of a new Hospice Care Index (HCI) as part of the Hospice Quality Reporting Program (HQRP);
  • creation of a star rating program for the Hospice CAHPS;
  • making some COVID-related blanket waivers permanent; and
  • numerous other provisions.

The rule also seeks the public’s input on a number of issues related to quality measures and hospice care. During this session, hospice experts from NAHC will provide in-depth details on various aspects of the rule and insights into their potential impact on hospice payment and quality.

Learning objectives:

  • Outline hospice payment changes resulting from the proposed rule
  • Describe clarifications to the election statement addendum requirements
  • Describe proposed changes to the HQRP, including addition of a Hospice Care Index Measure and star rating for hospice CAHPS, and removal of the seven HIS measures from Compare
  • Provide an update on the HVLDL measure and development and implementation of HOPE
  • Insights into potential future directions related to CMS’ approach to quality, including movement toward digital quality measures, potential application of IMPACT Act measures to hospice care, and closing the health equity gap in post-acute quality reporting programs
