How to Win a Hospice Eligibility Case: What Arguments are You Leaving on the Table?

Webinar Date - Tuesday, May 10, 2016

Webinar Recording

Webinar Summary

Join attorneys Bryan Nowicki and Jarod Ferch as they share strategies used in a variety of appeals to support and defend hospice eligibility decisions. Attendees will learn different ways to challenge eligibility decisions, from affirmatively demonstrating terminal prognosis by telling the patient’s story, to dissecting clinical decisions to prove how and why the reviewer is wrong. The presenters will also help hospices understand how to think beyond the clinical arguments and bolster their appeals with established legal support that most hospices are unfamiliar with, such as the treating physician rule and waiver of liability under the Social Security Act. Additionally, they will discuss how these appeal strategies should inform how hospices document terminal prognosis to avoid future denials.

Objectives:

  • Examine realities and other considerations that define your hospice's approach to appeals
  • Review elements of effective hospice appeals and appeal strategy
  • Discuss issues related to ALJ hearings
