Important Fraud and Abuse in Home Care and Hospice Webinar Focused on Areas of UPICs and the Audit Process!

Posted on Wednesday, January 24, 2018 4:38 PM

National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) and the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) are hosting a webinar on Wednesday, February 21, 2018 from 2 to 3:30pm EST.

Audits by government auditors (Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs); Medicaid Integrity Contractors (MICs); Recovery Audit Contractors (RACs) and Zone Program Integrity Contractors (ZPICs), now renamed Unified Program Integrity Contractors (UPICs), are on the rise.  For the home care industry, these audits have recently focused on physician certification requirement, eligibility for care, and reasonable and necessary services. For the hospice industry, the focus has been on eligibility, physician involvement and live discharges.  As the focus shifts in the early part of 2018, this Webinar will provide you with up to the minute summaries of audit activity and identify new areas for scrutiny.  Though home care and hospice each have distinct areas of concern, both are at high risk for the challenging scrutiny that audits bring.

This Webinar collaboration between the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and the National Association for Home Care & Hospice will help providers understand fraud and abuse, the audit process, steps to prevent allegations of fraud and abuse and response to audits if they occur.
