Palmetto GBA is pleased to announce our 2024 Home Health and Hospice workshop series. These workshops are designed to equip home health and hospice  providers with the tools they need to be successful with Medicare billing, coverage and documentation requirements. These workshops will provide insight for home health and hospice agency staff at all levels. 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.
