The newest Medicare form that you need to master is the Medicare Outpatient Observation Notice (MOON). This one is the result of the NOTICE Act passed by Congress that requires hospitals to provide written notification to observation patients. Besides the new MOON, there is the Important Message from Medicare (IMM). And there's the Advanced Beneficiary Notice of Noncoverage (ABN) and the Hospital Issued Notice of Noncoverage (HINN).
Knowing how and when to use the right form to protect your facility from being on the wrong side of patients' rights is serious business. And nothing gets the government's attention faster than a complaint about violating a beneficiary's rights.
While hospitals have been required to provide the IMM for the last nine years, many of you still have not mastered the process. And even more of you are still confused as to when to use the ABN and HINN notices. After this webcast you'll walk away an expert on all these forms.
From this important webcast you'll be able to master the use of the right form for the right reason and that will help your facility avoid providing unreimbursed and medically unnecessary care.
You will also learn how to...
- Develop procedures for use of the MOON.
- Discuss IMM requirements and best practices.
- Recognize situations for ABN use.
- Contract the four HINNs.
- Formulate best practices for use of these required notifications.
BONUS: Educational handouts will be provided for your patients and physicians during the webcast!
