2021 Jurisdiction M (JM) Hospice Medicare Workshop Series

  • April 21, 2021
  • 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM
  • Webinar


Registration is closed

Palmetto GBA is pleased to announce our 2021 Hospice Workshop series. These workshops are designed to equip home health providers with the tools they need to be successful in Medicare billing, coverage and documentation requirements.

These workshops will provide insight for home health agency staff at all levels. However, we do suggest that providers who are new to Medicare, or have new staff, attend our online learning courses for beginners at www.PalmettoGBA.com/hhh. Basic billing and other online educational resources can be found by accessing the Learning and Education link under the Education/Events 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 goal is to educate providers on the most up-to-date information and apply skillful techniques to their documentation and billing practices.
