Palmetto GBA to Host Home Health Medicare Secondary Payer Workshop Series

Palmetto GBA will present live Medicare Secondary Payer workshops that will be offered for home health and hospice providers in 2012. These workshops are designed for home health and hospice providers and their staff to equip them with the tools they need to be successful with Medicare billing under the MSP provisions. This workshop will provide insight for new, intermediate or advanced staff; however, Palmetto suggests that providers who are new to Medicare attend online learning courses for beginners.

The first workshop session will be held from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 4, 2012, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Atlanta, Georgia.

Topics will include:

  • Is Medicare primary or secondary?
  • Types of MSP situations
  • MSP billing regulations
  • Claim adjustment segments (CAS)
  • MSP billing codes
  • Questions and answers

Note: Attendees are encouraged to dress in layers or bring a sweater or jacket to ensure comfort. A light snack will be served at each the workshops. As a reminder, providers are encouraged to telephone the Provider Contact Center (PCC) at (866) 830-3925 with any claim specific questions they may have.

Featured speakers will be the Provider Outreach and Education department staff.
