The HHS Office of Inspector General (OIG) continues its intense oversight and scrutiny of the Medicare home health and hospice programs by analyzing the rich sources of data available to them. With increase in survey and audit activity —including Targeted Probe and Educate (TPE), UPIC and SMRC audits, learn what your agencies need to do to ensure payment compliance in the new decade. The session will cover types of government audits, recommendations for internal-self monitoring, as well as what to do if your agency identifies an overpayment.

Another Successful Blueprint for OASIS Training & Exam

0316161129

The Home Care Alliance of MA would like to thank the over 85 participants who took to the 2-day intensive Blueprint for OASIS training as well as a special congratulations to the 54 participants that took the OASIS COS-C certification exam last week on Wednesday, March 16th in Milford, MA.

Although OASIS is a high demand training, especially with the benefits to Value Based Purchasing, there is still a large cost associated with putting the training on. HCA would like to hold another training in the fall for members, around roughly November, however, we need to know if members would be interested in attending. With that, whether you are interested or not, the association would greatly appreciate it if you could take this very quick survey with your thoughts.
