2024 Jurisdiction M (JM) Medicare Hospice Workshop Series

Palmetto GBA is pleased to announce our 2024 Hospice Workshop series, titled “Medicare Hospice: Back with More in 2024”. These workshops are designed to equip hospice providers with the tools they need to be successful in Medicare billing, coverage, and documentation requirements. 

These workshops will provide insight for hospice agency staff at all levels. However, we do suggest that providers who are new to Medicare, or have new staff, attend our online learning courses for beginners at www.PalmettoGBA.com/hhh. Basic billing and other online educational resources can be found by accessing the Events and Education topic at the top of the page. 

Errors in billing and responding to additional documentation requests can be costly. During the workshop series, Palmetto GBA will provide information related to the most common errors and why these errors occur. We will also provide tips to avoid these errors. Palmetto GBA’s goal is to educate providers on the most up-to-date information and apply skillful techniques to their documentation and billing practices.
