The Mississippi Association of Home Care and the Mississippi Hospital Association are co-sponsoring a Home Health & Hospice Workshop Series. These workshops are designed for home care 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 home care and hospice agency staff at all levels. 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.
