The FY2015 PPS Final rule implemented a major change to the face to face requirement – it eliminated the narrative. However, in its place agencies are now dependent upon the physician's documentation to support the certification. The Face-to-Face audits have begun and already we are seeing the impact of these changes. The results of these audits will require agencies to further consider face to face compliance.
Join this informative session with expert speaker, Robert W. Markette, Jr., who will review the new issues raised by these audits and potential compliance solutions. This session will also give you ample opportunities to learn about the requirement of the revised face to face regulations – allowing you to see the results of the face to face audit process. You will also learn strategies for complying with the requirement in light of these results and review ways to help physicians properly document for face to face audits.
