This program, presented by Corridor powered by WellSky, covers the Conditions of Participation in detail, including the Medicare benefit from a clinical perspective including eligibility, recertification, what is covered and what is not, levels of care, revocation, discharge and transfer.  Throughout the program focus is placed on documentation throughout the continuum of care, including documentation regarding eligibility, levels of care, symptom management and the Local Coverage Determinations (LCDs).  In addition, the Comprehensive Assessment and the “rules” surrounding the Plan of Care.  Significant focus will be placed on the interdisciplinary team (IDT) including their form and function and the IDT meeting.  Facility based care is also highlighted in this program to assist in understanding the importance of care coordination and both the hospice and the facility responsibilities.
