    Home Care Nuts and Bolts: Beyond the Basics

    After the basic foundations, or "Nuts and Bolts" of home health comes the layers of application for documentation by field clinicians, such as survey preparedness, payment audits and the Payment Driven Groupings Model!  Presented by Annette Lee from Corridor, a former medical review nurse for the CMS Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC), she will create step by step learning to simplify these sometimes complicated areas with a checklist approach- and the "whys" behind the scenes. We will cover and provide examples and tools of "real world" documentation- from FTF to homebound and medical necessity!  Lastly, YOU will play the role of the medical reviewer and make decisions on some clinical records to confirm your knowledge. This class will take you to the next level in your home health expertise- and arm you with insights and tools to be successful!


    • Define the Face-to-Face Encounter and apply to daily clinical scenarios.
    • Understand and learn documentation requirements to support homebound status.
    • Define Medical Necessity and learn to apply tools and documentation strategies.
