With less than nine months until PDGM takes effect, home health agencies must start taking a deeper dive into the numbers and fully understand the details of PDGM and how they will impact their agency. In this presentation, we’ll examine the numbers of PDGM using national data from CMS’ Limited Data Set (LDS) which details 2017 PPS payments, converting to payments if PDGM had existed during that time.

Melinda Gaboury, COS-C, Co-Founder/CEO Healthcare Provider Solutions

The most significant change in Homecare Reimbursement in 20 years will go into effect January 2020. The Patient Driven Groupings Model (PDGM) is complicated, confusing, and overwhelming. CMS has provided some data on the revenue impacts and new PDGM components but there is more to be considered. Operational areas likely impacted under the new payment model include referral and sales management, intake, revenue cycle, operational reporting, order and supply management, and much more. This session will highlight the areas impacted and outline potential process changes to assist in optimizing operations performance under PDGM.

With PDGM set to begin January 1, 2020, now is the time to look inward at your agency’s financial management.  With the change from PPS to PDGM, agencies must look at their processes to ensure they have most efficient financial workflows.  In this session we will explore the potential impact of PDGM on the financial operations of an agency and discuss financial management strategies to help an agency manage under the new payment model.  We will provide benchmark data, key metrics and strategies for engaging all staff in helping the agency with successful financial management.

In the current environment of targeted and third party reviews, there is a constant concern of reviews that could result in recoupment of payments already made to hospices. This session will narrow the focus to the top five denial reasons, go into depth on each one and provide broader concepts. This session will highlight the documentation requirements to avoid the denials and the regulations that support. If your hospice is currently in a review or is just looking to improve the quality review standards, this session is a must.

"An In-Depth Review of the Hospice Regulations: From Eligibility to Discharge and Everything in Between"

Lisa Meadows, MSW, Clinical Compliance Educator, Accreditation Commission for Health Care


Understanding the hospice regulations from eligibility to discharge can be quite overwhelming. Often clinical staff has a limited understanding of the regulations and the requirements needed to be compliant with the regulations. A lack of understanding of the Hospice Medicare Benefit in addition to a lack of understanding of the Medicare Conditions of participation can lead to patients and families missing out on the required benefits of hospice care. This presentation is intended for anyone who is responsible for the delivery of care to hospice patients and families.

"The Service Intensity Add-On and End-of-Life Care: Impact to Clinical, Financial and Quality Operations"

Catherine Dehlin, BSN, CHPN, Director of Hospice Services, Fazzi Associates


The national hospice provider market has consistently revealed a predictable and often unintentional practice directly impacting the patient experience in the last days of life; negatively impacting quality, satisfaction and financial performance under the Service Intensity Add-On (SIA). How providers address care planning as end of life approaches is important not only to patients and their families, but is of increasing interest to CMS and the OIG. Clear guidance for staffing and a standardized, best practice, interdisciplinary and operational approach will give attendees tools to integrate into practice for an immediate impact on quality, patient and family experience and on the organization’s financial performance.
