Home Health Final Rule 2018
The Home Health Final Rule updates Medicare PPS rates and wage index for calendar year 2018. Included in these updates is a 0.4 percent decrease (-$80 million) in HH payments for 2018. One of the most notable provisions of the rule is the introduction to an alternative payment methodology, the Home Health Groupings Model (HHGM) beginning in 2019. The HHGM would use 30-day periods, rather than 60-day episodes, and rely more heavily on clinical characteristics and other patient information to place patients into more meaningful payment categories. The proposed rule also includes proposals for the Home Health Value-Based Purchasing Model and the Home Health Quality Reporting Program. Join Jennifer Warfield as she discusses these and other provisions of the Rule.

Allow Nurse Practitioners Autonomy in Nursing Homes
Allow Nurse Practitioners to be Primary Care Providers in Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNFs) 1. Current policy a. US Code Title 42, Chapter 7, Subchapter XVIII, Part A, Section 1395i-3, Subsection b-6 i. Requires that care of residents in SNF be provided and overseen by a physician and that a physician must review and approve the plan of care. b. State Operations Manual section 483.40 (Physician Services) i. Requires that resident care in skilled nursing facilities be provided by a physician. ii. Requires that a physician “personally approve” admission to a skilled nursing facility. iii. Specifies that a Nurse Practitioner may only provide care in Skilled Nursing Facilities under the supervision of a physician. iv. Requires that there be an on call physician in the absence of the primary physician. v. Requires that a physician see each resident monthly for the first 90 days, then every 60 days after that. 2. Policy Problems a. This policy restricts SNF residents’ freedom to choose a primary care provider other than a physician. b. This policy was written at a time when the role of Nurse Practitioners was poorly understood. c. Nurse practitioners are allowed to practice without Physician supervision in other long term settings with great success, yet they still require supervision in skilled nursing facilities. d. This policy does not take into account literature establishing that Nurse Practitioners yield the same patient outcomes as physicians with better patient satisfaction in primary care. e. It also does not consider the literature showing lower hospital admission rates and better patient outcomes where Nurse Practitioners are involved in patient care. Literature also shows better outcomes for SNF residents in states that allow Nurse Practitioners the most autonomy. f. This policy prevents Nurse Practitioners from practicing to the fullest extent of their training, qualifications, and scope of practice (especially in states that allow independent practice for Nurse Practitioners). Nurse Practitioners are not “physician extenders” as we are labeled in the State Operations Manual. We are independently Licensed Health Care Providers trained to operate both independently and in collaboration with other health care professionals. As such, Nurse Practitioners should be considered equal members of the health care team with physicians and other health care professionals. g. With the enactment of the Affordable Care Act, there is a shortage of primary care providers, and limiting SNF residents to a single provider type may make it difficult for them to receive primary care in a timely, efficient, and effective manner. 3. Recommendations a. This policy should be updated with provider neutral language that allows Nurse Practitioners to be primary care providers in SNFs without physician oversight (unless required by state regulations). b. Updating this policy this policy will allow SNF residents and their decision makers to have the freedom to choose from multiple provider types, just as patients in the community are allowed to do. This potentially provides more access to primary care for SNF residents. c. Updating this policy will allow Nurse Practitioners to practice to the fullest extent of their scope of practice, training, and state practice acts thus allowing them the be full participants in coordinated care for complex Medicare patients. d. Updating this policy will reduce the redundancy of having multiple primary care providers caring for a patient so that providers can focus on other patients in need of attention.

Your Rights with Medicare - 877-88KEITH (53484)
What are your rights with Medicare? Complete Medicare Resource Center here: http://www.medsupsavings.com/ 877-88KEITH (53484) Understanding Your Rights with Medicare and How Knowing Helps You Get the Best Coverage Beneficiaries participating in the federal government healthcare coverage program Medicare should be aware of rights they have for protection purposes. Your rights with Medicare provide protection under specific circumstances you should know about. Those who enroll for coverage will be made aware of this information in further detail based on what plan they qualify for. When this information is received you should review it carefully and ask questions if you need clarity. You can get additional details about your rights through Medicare.gov and through local legal services. The following points give insight on rights and protections beneficiaries should know about with Medicare coverage. • Your rights with Medicare include different areas related to healthcare coverage and services received. These rights help protect patients when health care services are received. There are rights in place to ensure patients receive services the law says you are entitled to. Such rights also provide protection against healthcare practices deemed unethical. More importantly, you have rights that keep your information private. • There are rights in place for everyone and anyone who receives Medicare coverage. These include general yet important details beneficiaries are entitled to as a Medicare recipient. For instance, you have rights that ensure you are treated fairly, protection from discrimination, have access to qualified health professionals, answers to questions you have, and rights to ensure you get as much information as possible about the health coverage itself to help you make the best decision about your health care. • Under original Medicare you have rights in relation to health care you receive. You have rights that allow you to purchase additional coverage for health care needs (Medigap), get details of when Medicare does not cover a service, and the right to obtain services from a Medicare-approved provider or facility. • Under Medicare Advantage plans you have a variety of rights that allow you to select your doctor of choice to ensure you get the care necessary, obtain treatment from the doctor or facility of choice (especially under special medical situations), and you have the right to know how doctors receive payment. If there are differences in the plan you have selected you have a right to appeal them. You have the right to file a grievance or complaint if there are issues with your plan. You also have rights that let you get information about coverage prior to receiving services. • Under the Medicare prescription drug plan (Part D) beneficiaries have specific rights including an appeal to resolve concerns related to determining coverage, filing a grievance or complaint, and your rights with Medicare include keeping prescription drug details related to your health private. How to Get More Information Regarding Medicare Rights There are several source options available to help you understand your rights as a beneficiary. These options include insurance assistant programs offered in your state (SHIP), the Medicare Beneficiary Ombudsman, and your state survey agency that oversee program activity related to Medicaid and Medicare. ================================================== QUICK AND EASY MEDICARE SUPPLEMENT QUOTES http://www.medsupsavings.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Med-Sup-Savings/1709195569306815 Twitter: https://twitter.com/MedSupSavings LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/pub/keith-armbrecht/5/11b/3a0 YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/BigHealthGreatWealth

Transitional Care Management TCM — MDM Leveling
Transitional Care Management (TCM) - MDM Leveling http://www.cco.us/certified-physician-practice-manager-cppm-course-exam-preparation/ Jo-Anne: Q: “I would like for you to go over TCM leveling for the physician’s office. My understanding is that it is based on the medical decision making only, but I would like to learn more about it. Could you possibly discuss this in the next monthly Q&A webinar?” A: Tonight that’s what I will be addressing. Before I go into Medical Decision Making, I will talk about some of the requirements that’s required for the TCM services. The first one is: “The services are required during the beneficiary’s transition to the community setting following particular kinds of discharges.” That means that when the patient is discharged, say, from the hospital, community setting can be anything from a nursing home, a rest home, the patient’s residence (his actual home), but it’s the discharge to wherever that patient is living. “The health care professional accepts care of the beneficiary post-discharge from the facility setting without a gap.” They go right into it. TCM starts the day of discharge. “The health care professional takes responsibility for the beneficiary’s care.” “The beneficiary has medical and/or psychological problems that require moderate or high complexity medical decision making.” In order to qualify for TCM coding, you have to have either moderate or high complexity.

Face-to-Face Visits — Proper HCPCS Codes and Certification Date for Billing
Face-to-Face Visits — Proper HCPCS Codes and Certification Date for Billing http://www.cco.us/pbb-physician-based-medical-billing-course-yt So, let’s go ahead and jump in and talk about Face to Face & Home Health Cert/PT Cert. Q: “There are some discrepancies in the office and external billing office with billing certifications signed by the doctors for: Face-to-Face visits for Home Health, Plan of Care and Physical - Occupational Therapy/Hospice. What are the proper HCPCS codes and date that should be on the certification for billing purposes?” A: Well this maybe a mouthful, but what I was able to do is to go in and pull out some specific information that I think is going to be beneficial for you. Different certifications fall under different timelines. For example, hospice, you can usually find a lot of information under hospice and I want you to know that if you go out and you Google this, I don’t want to say it’s self-explanatory, but there’s good information and the timelines seem to follow with the other scenarios that the person is wanting information on. One of the codes that you’re going to get familiar with is G0337. Now, this is a HCPCS code – hospice evaluation and counseling services, pre-election – meaning that they’re deciding that the person is going on hospice. That’s probably the term that you’ll be familiar with that you’ll hear. “The hospice must obtain verbal or written certification…” this is very important“…of the terminal illness…” So, hospice care, a person doesn’t usually go on hospice until they know that they’re at the end stages of life and they’re usually expecting life expectancy of six months. That’s kind of a standard, is what they’re thinking. Can it go longer? Absolutely it can go longer. Can it be less? Yes, it often is. But that’s the timeframe that they’re looking at. They’re looking at a possible six months window. For that, that means the person has to be terminally ill, “no later than 2 calendar days (by the end of the third day) after the start of each benefit period (initial and subsequent)” because mind you, you’re going six months but it could go longer. “Initial certifications may be completed up to 15 days before hospice care is elected.” That means that there’s a lot of counseling that goes on here and everybody rightly so wants to make sure that this is the best for their loved one.

Find Source Articles Here: https://getgenerations.com/generations-now-weekly-march-18-2017/ Nursing home cuts to hit Boomers Medicaid -- do not confuse with Medicare -- is for people with limited resources. This means low assets and low income. The money to pay for Medicaid comes from the federal government and state governments. Most states expanded Medicaid under Obamacare, so more low-income people could get health insurance. Each state manages their own Medicaid, and so they sometimes give it a different name just to confuse everybody -- like MediCal in California. 60% of Medicaid goes to people in nursing homes. And that affects not only them, but their adult children. When/If the new budget is passed, Baby Boomers with parents in nursing homes will need other options: move parents into their homes and hire care or become the primary caregiver. Federal Budget Trump redefining the role of Federal vs State government President Trump’s budget declares that his proposed cuts are designed “to redefine the proper role of the Federal Government.” His "skinny" budget reduces pork programs, programs with bipartisan support; and programs supported by people in his own Cabinet. Art of the Deal 2.0 "Everyone hates government spending except when it’s spent in their home district. Some think Trump sees his “Skinny Budget” it as an Art-of-the-Deal-style opening bid, in which Congressional Republicans will come back with slightly less draconian cuts that look reasonable only in comparison." Healthcare "Personal Responsibility Credo" to drive Medicare Seema Verma won Senate confirmation to oversee the Center for Medicare and Medicaid ("CMS"). Ms. Verma is an advocate of overhauling Medicaid with a “personal responsibility” credo. These include work requirements, drug testing and lifetime limits on healthcare for the gravely ill. Indeed, work requirements for able-bodied Medicaid recipients are baked into the new healthcare bill: “The Medicaid expansion has created a perverse incentive for states to provide benefits to able-bodied adults at the expense of the elderly, the blind and the disabled,” Representative Gary Palmer, Republican of Alabama, said this week. “A work requirement would help states focus their limited resources on the truly needy.” Health Management Associates acquired Seema Verma's consulting firm this week for an undisclosed sum. Trumpcare tilts coverage towards young According to the C.B.O. report, the bill would make health insurance so unaffordable for many older Americans that they would simply leave the market and join the ranks of the uninsured. The remaining pool of people would be comparatively younger and healthier and, thus, less expensive to cover. Millennials' politics A majority of non-white Millennials age 18 to 30 have increased their political engagement since the election and view President Trump as "illegitimate." Among white Millennials, 47% say Trump is "illegitimate" and 53% say "legitimate." The Hill. The poll of 1,833 adults ages 18-30 was conducted by the Black Youth Project at the University of Chicago with The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. It was conducted Feb. 16 through March 6. PDF of GenForward study by AP/Univ.Chicago/NORC. Demographics "Divorce rates double for people 50+!" Well, yes, they have doubled since 1990, from a low 5% to 10%. This 10% level has been steady since 2008. So, this week's headlines from Pew Research Center are misleading. The "gray divorce rate" is higher in 2nd marriages, and in the first 9 years of a marriage. Divorce for millennials is down, mostly because people are putting off marriage. Today, the median age of first marriage is 27.4 for women, and 29.5 for men.

The Daily Life of a Residential Assisted Living Owner - by Gene Guarino
What's the day to day life like owning an assisted living home and business? No day is the same. What you're looking for is the manager to take care of business, find the residents, take care of the family, hire the caregivers. The day to day life that you have within your assisted living business is going to depend on how you want to operate. You can be hands off and the manager is the one that finds hires, trains and retains the caregivers, the manager is responsible to make phone calls, bring in people who need the assisted living, do tours, bring them into the home, do the assessment of the resident that day to day, filling in the agreement. And when those residents come in and drop off a check for five, $6,000 a month and 10 of them get dropped off on the same day, that's a wonderful day. So the day to day life will depend on how you want to own and operate this home. We have students all over the country that are more hands on. If you have your management team in place, your job is to oversee and manage the manager. And day to day varies from day to day.

Home Health Conditions of Participation Final Rule Webinar Archive
This is a recording of the January 19, 2017, webinar VNAA hosted to discuss their analysis of the Home Health Conditions of Participation Final Rule and their potential impact and implications for home health agencies. The final rule will be published in the Federal Register on January 13, 2017, and has stated that agencies will have until July 13, 2017, to comply with the new regulations. This rule is the first rule to modernize the home health regulations since 1989. A brief overview of changes from the Home Health Conditions of Participation (CoPs) Final Rule include: - A requirement for an integrated communication system that ensures patient needs are met, care is coordinated and that there is active communication between a home health agency and the patient’s physicians. - A requirement for data-driven, agency-wide quality assessment and performance improvement (QAPI) program that evaluates and improves agency care for patients at all times. - An expanded patient care coordination requirement that makes a licensed clinician responsible for all patient care services, such as coordinating referrals and assuring plans of care meet patients’ needs. Other CoPs that are included in the final rule related to ensuring documented communication, care coordination and a comprehensive patient assessment that ensures all aspects of patient well-being. The rule also requires clearly stated comprehensive patient rights and the steps to assure those rights.

Corridor Webinar Series : Proposed Home Health CoPs - It's All About Quality
This webinar will explore the new proposed CoPs (first overhaul since 1989~!) and what they mean to Home Health Agencies. We will identify changes needed in policy and processes in order to be compliant, and how we can use these to provide even better quality of care to our patients. The majority of the standards had some revision with this proposal--from more details in patient rights, quality and coordination, to the elimination of the Professional Advisory Committee and the Annual Review. Let’s get informed of the changes in order to assess your current agency policies and practices and know where your efforts must be focused. Presented by: Annette Lee, RN, MS, HCS-D, COS-C
