Medicare Certification—Analyzing the Risks and Rewards
Medicare Certification—Analyzing the Risks and Rewards
Product Code: 436

Opportunities for home healthcare agencies continue to grow due to the elderly population and preference of most retired Americans to be cared for in their homes. Medicare reimbursed home health services have been designed to meet the short-term skilled needs of the homebound client. While Medicare is not the only payer source of home health, many insurers require a home care agency to be Medicare certified as a minimum requirement for contractual arrangements. This 60-minute webinar will address the requirements and steps for agency certification and pros and cons of certification.

Participants will—
  • Articulate the Medicare home health benefit
  • Consider options for Medicare certification or accreditation through CHAP, ACHC or Joint Commission
  • Articulate need, niche market and financial strategy
  • Identify basic requirements and resources
  • Define strategy and priorities for development or collaboration with a Medicare certified agency
