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.

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.

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.

OIG Compliance Plan Facts and Tips!
What are the facts about an OIG compliance plan required by the ACA? The Office of Inspector General within U.S. Department of Health in 2000 developed a series of voluntary compliance program guidance documents directed at various segments of the health care industry, such as hospitals, nursing homes, third-party billers, and durable medical equipment suppliers, to encourage the development and use of internal controls to monitor adherence to applicable statutes, regulations, and program requirements. In 2010, the Affordable Care Act or ACA mandated that providers put the previously voluntary compliance programs into practice. Use the direct link from the Office of Inspector General’s Compliance Program Guidance for Individual and Small Group Physician Practices at https://oig.hhs.gov/authorities/docs/physician.pdf to review the documentation for making your own compliance plan!

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.

How Are Nursing Homes Regulated? Are They Regulated?
http://www.schmidtkramer.com/ One of the many things that may cross your mind about having your loved one move into a nursing home is how it is regulated. Or, for that matter, are there any regulations or oversight? The answer is yes; they do have regulations. Nursing homes are regulated by state and federal law. The Department of Health has jurisdiction to enforce the regulations that govern nursing homes. The law requires that when you enter into a nursing home, the nursing home must develop a comprehensive plan designed to fit your particular needs. This allows the patient to feel comfortable in the home. Many times, this specific plan is referred to as person-centered care, meaning that the patient is in control. Unfortunately, sometimes the nursing home doesn’t follow through with the agreed upon plan. That’s when legal help may become necessary. We know witnessing neglect or abuse of a loved one can be very tough. We want to help you in any way we can. Experienced attorneys in nursing home neglect cases are available to talk to you today.

Feds Charge 300 in Health Care Fraud Sweeps
(22 Jun 2016) Health care fraud sweeps across the country have led to charges against 300 people including doctors, nurses, physical therapists and home health care providers accused of bilking Medicare and Medicaid, the government announced Wednesday. The sweep spread from southern California to southern Florida and Houston to Brooklyn, New York, with arrests being made over three days. In all, the fraudulent billings allegedly totaled $900 million, Attorney General Loretta Lynch said, calling it the largest national Medicare fraud dragnet. The defendants billed for care and prescriptions that were not necessary and services that were not rendered, Lynch said. Among those charged, for example, was a group that controlled a network of clinics in Brooklyn that received $38 million from Medicare and Medicaid after providing patients unnecessary treatment. A Detroit clinic billed Medicare for more than $36 million, even though Lynch said it was actually a front for a narcotics diversion scheme. Such investigations happen each year, but Lynch said investigators noticed some new trends, including the use of doctors' stolen IDs to prepare fake prescriptions. Those charged "target real people - many of them in need of significant medical care," Lynch said. "They promise effective cures and therapies, but they provide none." While the individual cases may be unrelated, law enforcement agencies often coordinate the announcement of health fraud charges and arrests to send a message to fraudsters and the general public alike. Health care fraud costs tens of billions of dollars annually.

New Tool Searches Nursing Home Deficiencies
A consumer-targeted Internet tool allows users to search the federal nursing home inspection reports and deficiencies by keyword, city and facility name. The Nursing Home Inspect database covers nearly 118,000 deficiencies at 14,565 homes. It was designed by ProPublica, a nonprofit newsroom that produces investigative journalism. Nursing Home Inspect uses data from surveyor reports published on Medicare's Nursing Home Compare website. But with Nursing Home Inspect, users can now search the database by keywords such as "elopement" or "pressure sore" or "mistreat." Unlike the CMS site, Nursing Home Inspect allows searches by keyword and city, as well as a home's name. Also unlike CMS, the app allows you to search across all the reports at once. The ProPublica project hones in on the narrative part of a surveyor's most recent periodic review, where the conditions and deficiencies are described. A tipsheet from the group cautions users that inspection reports focus only on a given facility's problems, not the accomplishments or improvements that home has made, and describes the results as giving a "snapshot." Although the government is reporting nursing home deficiencies online, it does not report how homes plan to fix the problems. These "Plans of Correction" can be viewed at the nursing home or by submitting a FOIA request to the government. Please support our advertisers by clicking on their ads.

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

Samuel Metz  Talking About Talking About Health Care
Sam Metz, MD, retired anesthesiologist from Portland, Oregon, gives his "3 Questions, 9 Answers" talk about how to meet the listener at her/his level of understanding about our health care system. He then adds the evidence in a step-wise fashion to move the listener toward the conclusion that universal improved Medicare for All or another form of single payer health care is the best solution to our dysfunctional health care system. Below is an outline of Dr. Metz's 3 Q 9 A Three Questions, Nine Answers about Health Care by Sam Metz MD July 2014, MCH 2/15 MCH 3.17 1. Why do we need health care reform? a. Our health care costs are twice the average of industrialized countries. We are the most expensive nation on the planet. b. In almost every category of public health, the US is at or near the bottom of industrialized countries. c. Health care costs are destroying American families with bankruptcies and devastated credit. 2. What do we want health care reform to achieve? Forget about selling insurance policies or reducing the national debt. We want: a. Health care access for us and our families no matter how poor, sick, old, or unemployed we may become. b. Reduced health care costs. Not just for government, insurance companies, employers, or employees... for everyone. c. Better health. We want improved medical outcomes but not sustain a health care industry and administrators more then needed to reach those outcomes. 3. How do successful systems succeed? Other countries provide better care to more people for less money than we do. What do they have in common that we don’t? a. They include everyone, without discrimination against the sick. In the US, we punish the sick by charging them more, reducing their benefits, or excluding them altogether. Successful systems do not do that. b. They encourage patients to seek care. They do not discourage people from seeking care with “customer-driven care,” “skin in the game,” high deductibles, high co-pays, etc. Instead of patients deciding if they need care before they see a physician, the physician determines if the patient need care after she sees the patient. c. Financing is provided by publicly accountable, transparent, not-for-profit agencies. In most countries you can make a profit providing health care; we are the only country that encourages you to make a profit financing health care. (Financiers are simply brokers: they collect from money patients and deliver it to providers.) If you have a system that includes everyone, encourages care, and funnels all health care money through only one publicly accountable, transparent, not-for-profit agency for financing, we can call that “single payer” (as in Canada and Taiwan) or “multi-payer through one public agency” (as in many European countries). The ACA deserves praise for at least temporarily helping many Americans, some of whom have gained insurance and access to healthcare for the first time in their lives. But the ACA is deeply flawed. Neither the ACA or its Republican replacement will improve the health of our population because both preserve financial incentives to avoid those who need care the most: the sick and the poor.  Competitive markets cannot promote healthcare for the population. Here's the reason. To effectively compete, a health insurance company must observe the 70% rule of avoiding risk. It makes good business sense and it is the fiduciary responsibility of companies’ CEOs and Boards of Directors to do so. This leads to garden metaphors (lemon dropping and cherry picking) and the exclusion of the people who need care the most. The result is ever-increasing suffering, and delays or avoidance of treatment. Neither the ACA nor CCOs effectively neutralize this incentive. Trillium, for example, which administers the CCO for Medicaid patients in Lane County, tripled its profits in 2013 and its parent company, Agate Resources, is being purchased by Centene, a Fortune 500 company of St. Louis, Missouri. Meanwhile in 2014 - 2015 safety net services such as Occupy Medical saw their main clientele change from homeless and uninsured patients to “insured” patients.  Most of these were on the Oregon Health Plan and in the Trillium CCO but not able to access to care through Trillium. Trillium points to lack of primary care providers, but nurse practitioners and other qualified primary care providers were turned down as hires by Trillium.  Private companies are taking an ever-increasing role in administering and profiting from public programs such as Medicaid and Medicare, usually without adequate public awareness or oversight and with resulting diversion of public health care money away from health care into other uses.  Our health care system creates financial hardship for families, businesses and governments, deters people from gaining timely medical attention, and confiscates money from underpinnings of health such as adequate housing, education, infrastructure, and social services.

Home Health Agency (HHA) PEPPER 102 - Webinar Archive
This recording is a continued discussion on the Home Health Agency (HHA) Program for Evaluating Payment Patterns Electronic Report (PEPPER). Building off of the Aug. 17 session, CMS contractor Kimberly Hrehor, MHA, RHIA, CHC, director at TMF Health Quality Institute reviews new resources available for HHAs, including peer-group bar charts, national- and state-level data, and there will be time for questions about the PEPPER. Still wondering how PEPPER might be helpful? According to TMF, the Office of Inspector General, Recovery Auditors, Medicare Administrative Contractors and other federal contractors are mining Medicare claims data in an effort to identify providers that may be at risk for fraud, waste and abuse. CMS is now producing an annual PEPPER for each HHA. HHAs are encouraged to review their report to learn if they might be an “outlier” in any of the target areas. Learn how to access your PEPPER then visit the PEPPER Resources Portal for a quick tour on how to access and review your report. The PEPPER is a free report summarizing three years of an HHA’s Medicare billing practices, comparing them with other HHAs for ten areas at risk for improper Medicare payments. The webinar is free, as is additional information, educational resources and training at PEPPERresources.org.

Obamacare Rationing
COBRAhealth.com - The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, PPACA. The government cannot create doctors, nurses and facilities to service the masses of people. ObamaCare cuts payments to the private health insurance companies that provide coverage to the 20 percent of Medicare enrollees who participate in the Medicare Advantage program.ObamaCare cuts the prices Medicare uses to pay hospitals and many other health care providers. ObamaCare could force one in six hospitals to stop accepting Medicare patients. we will ration with our eyes open.You can't get medications. You are left waiting on life saving procedures. You must wait for quality of life procedures that are medically needed. 5 million Canadians have no health insurance and the wait is 5 years for a primary care physician.

Probate and Wills | Greensboro North Carolina | The Elderlaw Firm
The ElderLaw Firm North Carolina Estate Planning and Elder Care https://www.elderlawfirm.com/plan-protect/ Call (336) 378-1122 A major part of our mission at The ElderLaw Firm is providing useful education to help folks navigate elder law estate planning in North Carolina. A pioneer in elder law, Dennis Toman became frustrated and sad that so many people could be helped but they never got the information they needed in time. So he started by writing articles and giving talks to share information that lawyers and the system traditionally used to make things complicated. Our success is based on sharing information with hard working families in North Carolina. Our clients love this. The more information we give away, the more clients call us and let us help. The secrets we share gives families knowledge and confidence about their options: how to get started and what’s important. Issues like; Retirement, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Nursing Home Care, Elder care, Living Trusts, Wills and Probate. Free seminar AT: https://www.elderlawfirm.com/category/elder-care/ We hold our Ducks in a Row Legal Webinar every few weeks so that you have a chance to get the answers you need. Join us to discover how to avoid elder and estate planning mistakes, with plenty of Q&A time with an attorney. What is probate? Does my Will avoid probate? Many times, there’re different reasons for doing estate planning and long term care planning and one of the questions is how do I simplify my estate for my family. And one of the worries that we frequently hear about is how do I avoid probate? Well, probate is court-supervised estate administration. Any assets that pass under a will are subject to probate. That means that they have to be reported to the court; the court is going to have an oversight on that, and it’s going to be extra red-tape, extra core cost and extra delay. Now fortunately, North Carolina is not as bad as some states for probate, but still it is important to consider how to simplify estate administration especially when we’re passing assets down to the children. Probate between spouses is not so bad, but when it’s probate down to the children, that’s when typically we like to have a revocable living trust in place, or an irrevocable trust, because both will help to avoid probate and court supervised estate administration.
