Improving your Success with Additional Development Requests (ADR) and Audits

November 4, 2014 - 8am-5pm - Albuquerque, NM

Provided by:




Hospices are facing unprecedented regulatory and payment-related scrutiny these days. Additional Development Requests (ADRs), focused/targeted medical review, ZPIC audits, and governmental investigations are happening all over the country. Ensuring that physician and interdisciplinary documentation justifies payment is of paramount importance. Is your team ready? Will their notes support medical necessity for the Medicare Hospice Benefit? Are claims associated with higher levels of care at risk of being denied and reduced to the routine home care level of payment?

Weatherbee Resources is partnering with the Texas & New Mexico Hospice Organization to offer a 1-day workshop on payment-related scrutiny … what can happen, how to prepare, and how to respond.

Take away:
*Ensuring eligibility
*Admitting the right patients
*How to keep your claims clean
*Proper documentation to support higher levels of care
*Learn how proper coding can impact eligibility
*Learn how to reduce your risk of exposure to scrutiny
*Achieve successful outcomes when audit comes your way.
