Mark Your Calendars: Palmetto GBA to Host Four Ask-the-Contractor Teleconferences with Providers

Palmetto GBA has announced it will present four Ask-the-Contractor teleconferences between July and April 2013 for Medicare-certified home health providers.

The four specialty topics discussed are Version 5010 (July 10), appeals (October 9), medical review documentation (January 8) and provider enrollment and validation (April 9).

The teleconferences are intended to open the communication channels between providers and Palmetto, which allows for timely identification of problems and information-sharing in an informal and interactive atmosphere. These teleconferences will be held at least quarterly via teleconference. To help ensure your access to this conference call, Palmetto asks that participants dial in five to 10 minutes prior to the scheduled start time.
