InBoxing: Pre-Claim Review is back...kind of

  •   Article
  •   8/2/2018
  •   Tripp Matthews, Aaron Little

In this "InBoxing" article, Aaron Little of BKD discusses (the artist formerly known as) Pre-Claim Review. The Medicare home health pre-claim review (PCR) process implemented in 2016 created extensive operational challenges and payment delays and was eventually “paused” in 2017.  A new threat to operational efficiency and cash flow has been proposed to replace PCR in the form of the Review Choice Demonstration (RCD).  

Aaron and I discuss why it has resurfaced, what has changed, what will be different this time around, and a new name for this significant regulatory change.

Education is key to assuring quality care for patients. The better educated the staff, the lower the costs for the entire health care system.
