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
