From NAHC: How to Fix the Face-to-Face Requirement

8/14/2017 HealthWare Financial 0 Comments

In late May, Reps. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) and Kenny Marchant (R-TX) introduced the Home Health Documentation and Program Improvement Act, H.R. 2663, in the House of Representatives. This bill serves as a long-awaited fix to the onerous face-to-face requirement. It also allows for a settlement on improperly denied claims due to the requirement.

Found in this article: “… a noticeable rise in approval rates was demonstrated once the home health agency’s record was considered alongside the physician’s patient record. We believe this is great evidence in proving the value of reviewing the entire patient record when determining claim status.”
