Why your claims are being denied: Separating the Myths and Facts

  •   Webinar
  •   1/20/2017
  •   Michael McGowan

Michael McGowan of Operacare delivers this education on understanding why your claims are being denied.  CMS states more than 50% of home health claims are billed in error. Ninety-five percent of Home Health Agencies routinely submit data and claims that cannot be defended during medical review.  Yet after spending thousands of dollars on Quality Assurance activities each month, most HHA’s still don’t know why their claims are being denied. 

Claiming your patients are sicker than other agencies around you; 40-50% of you are at risk for insolvency, audits, and failure in the forthcoming payment models.  Value-based payment models, 5-star ratings, and Pre-Claim reviews are all impacted by this myth and lack of understanding of the data available to Home Health Agencies.
