2019 Webinar Website Banners (1000x300)

WEBINAR OVERVIEW:

Every year CMS establishes a new base level for the OASIS Case-Mix calculations.  This process consistently changes the payment amounts that agencies receive each year.  The change is often not noticed by agencies and clinicians until the final claims come through in February and March of the new payment year.  In this webinar we will dive into the Case-Mix changes to understand which type of patients are going to be the most beneficial referrals for 2019. 

Objectives:

  • Understand the changes in the case-mix point system for each OASIS question.
  • Verbalize the threshold changes to the HHRG groupings
  • Demonstrate how a patient that has the same HHRG grouping in 2018 is not going to be paid at the same amount in 2019.
  • Understand the case-mix questions that will provide the most beneficial financial changes to your agency.
