Webinar - Do Staff Understand What it Means to Be Homebound Under the Medicare Home Health Benefit?
Presented by: The Association for Home & Hospice Care of North Carolina
About the Webinar
In this day and time of increased audits and clinical record/claim review, we need clinicians to have an excellent understanding about what the CMS Medicare Home Health Coverage Manual requires as related to homebound documentation! This 90 minute webinar focuses on the Medicare Manual but also illustrates the requirements with examples and Q&A. The presentation also highlights OASIS questions that support the patient’s homebound status.
The webinar handouts will include tips on how to document appropriately given a variety of patient scenarios; a post-test helpful for new or refreshing home health staff; and references.
