One of the most significant regulations for home health and hospice providers in 2011 is the physician face-to-face encounter requirement. There are many complexities to this new requirement, including:

  • Tracking which patients require the encounter
  • Adhering to the time frame required for the encounter
  • Determining what physicians are allowed to perform the encounter
  • Adhering to certification documentation requirements

M. Aaron Little, CPA and Senior Managing Consultant at BKD, LLP in Springfield, MO presented this 90-minute webinar free to all LeadingAge members. This webinar will help you better understand the face-to-face encounter and documentation requirements and provide tools to help prepare you for this new requirement.
