Palmetto GBA is pleased to announce our 2020 Hospice Workshop Series “Hitting the Target with Medicare.” These workshops are designed to equip hospice providers and their staff with the tools they need to be successful with Medicare billing, coverage and documentation requirements. Link below to register. 
These workshops will provide insight for hospice agency staff at all levels. However, we do suggest that providers who are new to Medicare, or have new staff, attend online learning courses for beginners offered at 
www.PalmettoGBA.com/hhh. Basic billing and other online educational resources can be found in the Self-Paced Learning section by selecting the Learning and Education link under the Browse Topics option at the top of the page. During the workshop series, Palmetto GBA will provide information related to the most common errors identified through a variety of data analyses and some hints and tips as to why these errors occur. Palmetto GBA’s ultimate goal is to have educated and astute providers that know how to accurately and skillfully apply the information they learn to their documentation and billing practices.

Speakers: Charles Canaan, MPH, BSN, RN, CCA, CPC, Senior Provider Education Consultant, Palmetto GBA and Dan George, Senior Provider Relations Representative, Provider Outreach and Education, Palmetto GBA
