Free webinar on Medicare (not Medicaid) home care on June 2

May 24, 2016

Dear Friends,

I'm writing to let you know that a free webinar on Medicare home care eligibility and documentation requirements for all settings of care will be held on Thursday, June 2, from 10 to 11:30 a.m., by Medical Society of the State of New York, Home Care Association of New York State, and National Government Services (NGS).

CMS requires that establishing patients’ Medicare eligibility and supplying supporting medical record documentation for post-acute home care services be a shared responsibility between referring providers—hospital, nursing home, and practitioners—and the receiving home care agency.

The referring entity—hospital or nursing home—and ordering practitioner must review and document the patient’s status at the time of discharge in the context of Medicare’s home care eligibility criteria, and provide that information as part of the patient transition to the receiving home care agency.

All staff involved with planning and implementing a patient’s transition to post-acute home care services are urged to attend this webinar.

Online registration for this June 2 webinar is provided by NGS. Registrants are invited to email their pre-webinar questions for speakers to jmcpartlon@mssny.org before May 26.

All the best,

Alex
