General Inpatient (GIP) care is one of the most targeted areas for fraud, abuse and waste in hospice, as targeted by the authorities, because it is one of the most misused levels of care. When a hospice patient is deemed by the interdisciplinary team to need this level of care, there are complex and serious medical issues that require greater levels of expertise and attention. Although the significant majority of hospice patients never receive this level of care, it is the most scrutinized and poorly managed.
This excellent session was led by Katie Wehri, CHPC, of Healthcare Provider Solutions. Her focus is:
Clearing up myths about how GIP should be used
Providing concrete, practical examples of how to and how NOT to use this level of care
Providing a summary of what has happened over the recent years relative to oversight activity for this level of care
Over the last 30 years CMS [Center for Medicaid Medicare] has warned the health care community that Medicare as it was constructed could not survive. Because of this, there has been increased focus on service delivery options and an increasing emphasis on quality care of the chronic diseases that account for 80% of the expenses for health care insurers.
One missing link seems to be adequate aide education or lack thereof. To address this issue, Ginny Kenyon of Kenyon HomeCare Consulting presented this webinar on WHY healthcare organizations need to have Chronic Disease education at the heart of their strategic initiatives, and how they can access and implement this education to their staff and clinicians.

Michael Markowitz of TC Services USA joins the podcast in a truly educational episode. He discusses how his company helps agencies take full advantage of the Work Opportunity Tax Credit (referred to commonly as WOTC). This incentive pays an employer $2400 per new employee hired - as long as the new employee meets certain criteria. Within the post-acute healthcare industry, Michael figures less than 10% of employers are taking advantage of this credit. We try to figure out why more companies are not doing this, and he has some good insights as to why. He also lays out the internal machinations of how the red tape works, and how his company helps take the scissors to that.
This is a very straightforward topic and something can impact you and your organization today.
