[PGM1800] Face to Face: Lessons Learned
The homecare community has been working tirelessly to understand the 2011 Final Regulations.
The most bothersome of these new regulations has been the F2F requirements. This rule could have a drastic financial impact for
agencies that accept new patients that were not seen by their primary care physician in the allotted time. The F2F requirements
are not going away, so this program helps you understand this new regulation and the presenter discusses some of the numerous
problems agencies have encountered since.
Program Goal: To assist the viewer in recognizing the 2011 Final Regulations
requiring patients to have a scheduled visit with their physician as a condition of home health agency’s reimbursement.
