CLINICAL COMPLIANCE REVIEW
At the Start of Care, we review the Face-to-Face Encounter to confirm timely completion by an appropriate provider and that the Face-to-Face Encounter supports homebound status and skilled need.
As this requirement is critical for certification of eligibility for Medicare home health services, this step at the time of start of care ensures that your agency’s compliance to the Conditions of Participation improves significantly.
Our Pre-Bill Reviews focus on reviewing support for the Face to Face (F2F), eligibility, plans of treatment, interim orders, visit documentation, and medical necessity to verify that all required information for billing is present and in accordance with Medicare coverage criteria and billing guidelines.
On a monthly/quarterly basis, we will summarize our statistical findings of the reviewed charts. We will provide analysis of the reviews at a provider, clinician, clinical manager, and physician level. This report will highlight trends impacting the organization and enable multi-level analysis of the identified issues.
For providers under Review Choice Demonstration, we do the pre claim reviews of the documentation to determine if beneficiaries meet home health coverage requirements, package the charts based on the tasks and submit it to the Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC).
The agencies we are working with have been able to keep the affirmation rate above 95%, much higher than the required 90%.
