Hospice Compliance Updates NC 10.19.23

Speaker: Laurie Newlun, MSN, RN, CHC, CHPC
Senior Manager

Audits: TPE, RAC, SMRC they are coming.  Do you know who they are and why and what they are looking for?
What are the newest updates to the Conditions of Participation for hospice and the current climate of audit reviews by governmental agencies?
How do I develop best practice to avoid survey penalties, recoupment of funds and money spent in defense? 

When preparing for a survey or defending your organization in response to auditors the best process is development of a plan and understanding how to avoid or defend yourself during an appeals process. As a part of this education, we will discuss hospice compliance, developing a plan to avoid negative regulatory findings during a TPE, SMRC and RAC review and if needed how to establish best practices and an effective appeal and/or defensive processes. 

 Continuing Education:This activity is eligible for 2.5 nurse contact hours.
The Association for Home and Hospice Care of North Carolina is approved as a provider of nursing continuing professional development by the North Carolina Nurses Association, an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.

Confirmation: Prior to the webinar, you will receive a Zoom confirmation email which will include a join link to access the webinar, a dial-in number and an access code to listen in via telephone. You will also be sent any pertinent handouts if available.

Registration Fee: The registration fee covers one individual and one continuing education (CE) certificate (if applicable). Multiple site participation from individuals within your agency will require separate registration. For example: if your agency has paid for 1 participating registration but 3 people from your agency would like to attend (and receive CE credit), your agency will need to pay a separate registration fee for all 3 participants. In addition, if your agency has sent in 1 registration but 3 people from your agency register through the Zoom link, your agency will be invoiced the registration fee for the additional 2 registrations. The handouts will be emailed to you to the email address you provide. Please feel free to provide an additional email address as a backup. If you would like to register more than 10 attendees from your agency, please contact [email protected] for discount group pricing.

Cancellation and Substitution Policy: Fees will be refunded, or invoices will be adjusted, only if written notice of cancellation is received by AHHC one week prior to the event. In the event of cancellation, AHHC will retain, or charge, 50% of the initial registration fee, per registrant, to cover administrative overhead. Once written cancellation is received, an AHHC staff member will review for approval. If your cancellation is approved, we will email back a signed and dated copy of the cancellation that your agency should retain on file in case of questions. Substitutions may be made up to the day of the event. Please contact [email protected] if you have any questions.
