Audio Conference: New Developments in the Jimmo Case

When:  Jul 26, 2018 from 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM (CT)

The settlement of the Jimmo case resulted in significant changes to eligibility requirements for the home health benefit of the Medicare Program. Patients are no longer required to show improvement in order to qualify for therapy services. What’s the latest with regard to the requirements of the settlement? What specifically does the settlement require CMS to do? How has CMS carried out the Court’s mandates? What does this change in eligibility mean as a practical matter for home health agencies and therapists? How should an Agency’s documentation change as a result of the requirements of the settlement? What has been the focus of compliance efforts so far? How will these efforts likely change in the future? The purpose of this teleconference is to address these issues so that agencies and therapists can take appropriate action regarding provision of services to patients.
