2018 Palmetto GBA Home Health & Hospice Medicare Workshop

Jurisdiction M (JM) Medicare Workshop Series
Winning with Medicare
Hospice Workshop – Wednesday, February 28, 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Home Health Workshop – Thursday, March 1, 8:30 am – 12:30 pm

The Mississippi Association of Home Care and the Mississippi Hospital Association are co-sponsoring Palmetto GBA's 2018 Home Health and Hospice Workshop Series, Winning with Medicare. These 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 will provide insight for hospice agency staff at all levels; however, we suggest that providers who are new to Medicare or have new staff attend online learning courses for beginners offered 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!
