Survey Readiness for Hospice Programs
About This Webinar
Hospices have been subject to intense regulatory scrutiny for quite a few years now with ADRs, ZPIC audits, OIG investigations, etc. Now, with the passage of the Impact Act, hospices can expect more regular and frequent scrutiny with regard to compliance with the Medicare Conditions of Participation (CoP). This webinar helps you distinguish between the types of surveys and audits hospices can expect to encounter. With the focus on what hospices need to know and what they need to do, Dr. Wilson suggests strategies for maintaining a constant state of survey and audit readiness.
After this webinar you’ll be able to:
- Explain the difference between audits for compliance with conditions of coverage and surveys for compliance with the conditions of participation.
- Name three Medicare contractors that conduct surveys or audits.
- List three of the most important resources hospices need to use for survey preparation and readiness.
