healthcare and.management that covers acute long-term.care and hospice thank you for joining.us today and we will begin the.presentation you'll be able to answer.asked questions today however if we.don't get to your question for one.reason and the other please leave your.question and we will follow up in an.email to you today's topic is a self.determined hospice cap for 2015.excuse me while I move the slide this.presentation is for informational.purposes.neither parties advance hospice.management or LMH PCL plus have a shared.financial relationship with or interest.in commercial interests between the two.parties it is at the discretion of the.participant to use this information to.his or his or her own use again welcome.to our presentation today the topics.that we're going to cover are the.timeframes for the self determined.hospice cap we'll be looking at how you.calculate an agency's cap what Palmetto.GBAS instructions are for the self.determined hospice cap and the providers.necessity of compliance please note that.this does not cover areas related to the.inpatient hospice cap requirements to.give you a little background as many of.you probably know hospice was initiated.under the Medicare hospice benefit 1983.the aggregate hospice cat was designed.to protect Medicare from spending more.for hospice care than conventional.conventional Medicare medical care by.the end by limiting the total aggregate.payments a hospice can receive in a year.and as you know when we think about a.year is not a calendar year it's the.federal physical year that we go by in.this instance for 2016 it is from.November the 1st of 2015 through October.the 31st 2016.as of 2014 and every captive since that.time hospices were mandated to calculate.and self-report their cap amount to.their max and our instance.it would be palmetto GBA that we are.reporting to the calculation period the.calculation period should be made no.sooner than three months following the.close of the cap year and no later than.five months following the close of the.cap here in the intent here is to.capture as much revenue that was paid.during that period of the wage in next.year and essentially the way you account.for the cap is the number of patients.time the CMS designated cap amount which.equals the allowable payment that the.hospice provider could have received.within the wage index year self.reporting cap timeframes providers will.consider Medicare revenue received for.the period of November the 1st 2015.through October the 31st 2016 the self.determined hospice cap is due to.Palmetto no later than March the 31st.2017 I cannot express how serious this.is.for providers to get their cap reports.in to Palmetto by the 31st of this month.filing a self-determined hospice cap.paddle palmetto GBA requires that.providers use a specific one-page form.below on this slide you will see the.website that you can go to and find your.instructions it just so happens today if.you are enrolled in PAL metals listserv.there is a reminder in the.today about this information calculation.of the self-determined hospice cap is.going to be determined by what the.hospice chose is our cap mythology so a.hospice agency a licensed hospice agency.is either a streamlined mythology or are.proportional.so the first thing we're going to.consider is you need to you need to know.what what you're using in your agency is.it streamline or prepare or proportional.the wage index of 2012 gave providers.the opportunity to continue to continue.to use the streamline that is the.mythology that we begin with when.Medicare hospice cap rates were.introduced or you could move to.proportional and this was a one-time.one-time only choice providers were.given the choice to stay with streamline.or proportional what she makes a.decision or what they made a decision to.move to proportional there is no going.back and returning to former mythology's.so if I chose proportional I could not.now go back to streamline now Hospice is.at Keeneland.after that time frame the wage index of.2012 had no choice they were.automatically became proportional.providers so how do you look at these.two types of providers first of all in.the streamline you must count your.patients between the period of September.the 28th of 2015 through October the.31st 2016 and what you're looking at in.this scenario are patients who were.admitted to your service and this is.their first time ever they have ever.elected hospice now sometimes you have.patients come from other agencies that.were admitted to your agency and your.streamline you can go in and look at.your.psnr report and we'll discuss that.further in just a few minutes I think.you could probably find this information.in the Common working file or helps if.you know that you are sharing a patient.you can go back and look at your days.because you're going to be given a.fraction of that patient to use in your.calculation of monies that you should.have received within that time frame so.let's just have an example here mrs..helm elects hospice for the first time.on August the 21st 2016 and expires on.April the 17th 2017 so we are only able.under this mythology to count mrs. M one.time as a full patient in the 2016 wage.index now in this example I'm assuming.that mrs. M has only been or mrs. M has.only been in my auspice during that.period she hasn't had any other hospices.stay I'm just trying to make this can be.very confusing so I'm trying to make.this as simple as possible proportional.methodology in this particular situation.your accounting your patients that are.admitted November November the 1st 2015.through October the 31st 2016 a patient.by patient proportional count includes.only that fraction which represents the.portion of total patient days of care.and all hospices and all years and that.hast that was spent in the hospice in.the cap year.they get that's a mouthful and it gets.really confusing so I'm trying to keep.these examples as simple as I can mrs. C.is admitted on October the 20th 2015 and.expires on December the 31st 2015 as you.can see she's in between two cap periods.the proportional mythology provides for.counting a fraction of mrs. C's days for.the wage index years of 2015 and 2016.in this example mrs. C had 73 total.hospice days so using mrs. C 1 is a.whole number in the count of the hospice.amount allowed for wage index years of.2015 and 16 we can count point 16 of.mrs. C for wage index year 2015 and for.the wage index year 2016.she is counted as 0.8 E for because with.your cap years you ended October the.31st for wage index year 2015 and you.begin a new wage index year November the.1st 2015.hospice self reporting cap is fixed by.the federal statutory hospice cap amount.for the 2016 wage index and for this.period it is $27,000 820 I'm sorry 27.thousand eight hundred and twenty.dollars and seven.five cents so you're looking at the.total number of patients who elect.hospice during the specific mythology of.payment you take that amount and you.multiply it by the statutory cap of the.twenty seven thousand eight hundred and.twenty dollars and seventy five cents.the multiplied amount is compared to the.Medicare monies that you receive for.that time period as an example an agency.admitted 73 hospice patients so you.would take those 73 and we're assuming.these 73 are whole number of patients.you're not having to fracture them out.times the 27,000 so the allowable.revenue that that hospice agency could.receive during that wage index year is 2.million 30 thousand nine hundred and.$14.75 however in this example the.agency collected over two million nine.hundred and seventy five dollars three.hundred and three hundred and forty six.based on this example the agency is over.the allowable cap the agency must make.must repay nine hundred ninety four.thousand four hundred and thirty one.dollars by March the 31st of this year.or make arrangements with Palmetto GBA.another example and this is where you've.got patients that you may not get a.whole patient account of them a whole.number one but you may have fractional.patients based on this example 24.73.hospice patients were admitted we take.that amount again times a twenty seven.thousand eight hundred and twenty.dollars for a total payment of six.hundred and eighty nine thousand four.hundred and eighty one dollars and.sixty-five cents in this particular.example the agency only collected six.hundred and fifty thousand six hundred.ninety eight dollars in the wage index.year for Medicare they are under the.allowable cap the agency is not.responsible to to make any payback.because they're under the cap Palmetto.issued letters to hospice providers.around February the 28th 2017 once again.they're provided the letters provide.specific information on filing a.one-page report it I believe it is still.on an Excel spreadsheet but this is what.you will do to to do yourself.determining hospice calculation all.providers should follow all steps even.if you're under the cap amount and.you're comfortable with knowing you're.on the cap amount you still need to file.your report by March 31st.if not already established providers.should enlist in the EDI M or Enterprise.identify management system you will need.to enroll in that so you may be able to.access the provider statistical and.reimbursement report for the PS and R.for EDI M if you've utilized this.particular report for Cap's you're.already fine I'm sorry for your annual.cost report you're already established.in that system however if you're not you.need to do this as soon as possible.because when you go to apply for this.there are certain documents and certain.people that you must point within your.organization prior to being eligible to.receive PS and our data you'll see this.is an example of what it looks like when.you arrive at the CMS portal and you.will go from here to sign up for your.psnr when Palmetto sent out these.letters they were providing you with.information that they had at hand at the.time they wrote the report.I saw one cap letter notification is.that the letter was written around.February the 7th T.so when Palmetto sends that information.out to the provider they have the number.of patient count and monies received.today and you're told I believe in the.letter that you can use that information.when you are.filing for your cap report to them but.utilizing the PS and our report will.provide the most currently known hospice.patient count because the hospice.patient count is going to be vital in.you calculating if you were over or.under for 2016.necessity of compliance pal metal will.issue a late notice letter and withhold.provider payment if the self determined.hospice cap is not submitted by March.the 31st a provider who exceeded the.allowable cap will be expected to send a.payment to Palmetto when filing that.self determining hospice cap or you may.request an extended repayment schedule.with Palmetto there are instructions on.how you do this in your cap letter but.you you need to proceed as soon as you.can and getting your PS and our.information because it could be.detrimental quite detrimental if you had.to pay back a significant fun refund.back to Palmetto by the 31st again.calculate your cap as soon as possible.alright once you've got your cap off you.email it and you're finished and.Palmetto will spend the next three years.reviewing your 2016 the next year.reviewing your 2016 wage index and and.you will get a letter saying that you.know you were under or you were over if.you are over they will they will tell.you what you are over now Palmetto also.has a three-year window of time to.recalculate a hospice agencies cap and I.would assume that that's done because if.you're sharing patients they have to.have enough allowable time to review.other providers cap information and come.to a final decision I hope that's this.talk today at webinar has been.informative does anyone have any.questions at this time.thank you for joining us today thank you.to advance hospice management for.hosting this webinar here is the.information for LM HP CEO plus we.welcome your cause and we welcome your.questions here is our information my.partner is and Walker and her email.addresses and at LM HP co.org and I'm.Martha McDormand at Martha at LM HP.co.org thank you for being present

What happens to all of the paper forms you fill out for immigration and customs?

Years ago I worked at document management company. There is cool software that can automate aspects of hand-written forms. We had an airport as a customer - they scanned plenty and (as I said before) this was several years ago... On your airport customs forms, the "boxes" that you 'need' to write on - are basically invisible to the scanner - but are used because then us humans will tend to write neater and clearer which make sit easier to recognize with a computer. Any characters with less than X% accuracy based on a recognition engine are flagged and shown as an image zoomed into the particular character so a human operator can then say "that is an "A". This way, you can rapidly go through most forms and output it to say - an SQL database, complete with link to original image of the form you filled in. If you see "black boxes" at three corners of the document - it is likely set up for scanning (they help to identify and orient the page digitally). If there is a unique barcode on the document somewhere I would theorize there is an even higher likelihood of it being scanned - the document is of enough value to be printed individually which costs more, which means it is likely going to be used on the capture side. (I've noticed in the past in Bahamas and some other Caribbean islands they use these sorts of capture mechanisms, but they have far fewer people entering than the US does everyday) The real answer is: it depends. Depending on each country and its policies and procedures. Generally I would be surprised if they scanned and held onto the paper. In the US, they proably file those for a set period of time then destroy them, perhaps mining them for some data about travellers. In the end, I suspect the "paper-to-data capture" likelihood of customs forms ranges somewhere on a spectrum like this: Third world Customs Guy has paper to show he did his job, paper gets thrown out at end of shift. ------> We keep all the papers! everything is scanned as you pass by customs and unique barcodes identify which flight/gate/area the form was handed out at, so we co-ordinate with cameras in the airport and have captured your image. We also know exactly how much vodka you brought into the country. :)

How do very mixed race people fill out official documents and forms that ask for race if one is only allowed to choose one race?

I cant answer for everyone but I always answer my dads race (asian/filipino) because of two reasons. My dad is where I get my last name and thus my tribe in a way. Plus I resemble my dad's family more than my mom's. I am not close at all with my mother's family and I grew up in almost entirely Filipino culture.

Do we have to fill out all the forms that came in the document with the call letter for AFSB?

yes.. if you are major, you don't need that indemnity bond for minors.. And rest all character certificate and tattoo certificates.. you don't need tattoo certificates unless uh have tattoos over you.

Why don't schools teach children about taxes and bills and things that they will definitely need to know as adults to get by in life?

How is a school going to thread the needle on “parenting”? Now go to bed and say your prayers? Now brush your teeth and go to bed? Do your homework before you go to bed? The simplest things are going to infuriate a third of the parents, or maybe two thirds of them. As to cooking, Theodore Dalrymple (Dr Anthony Daniels) wrote that in all his time as a prison psychologist, when he’d make home visits in the course of his professional duties, and visit British British, not immigrants, he’d never once seen anybody cooking anything. They all just lived on ready-to-eat junk food. It seems improbable that a Continue Reading

Do military members have to pay any fee for leave or fiancee forms?

No, not only NO but HELL no!!!!! There are no fees for any paperwork needed in the service. I have 30 days of leave a year. If I want to take some, I request it from my supervisor by email. He approves and then kicks it up the line so it’s taken care of administratively. I get back the ID I need and I’m off. Not one dollar changed hands. If I’m deployed it can be a little trickier but the process is basically the same. There are no fees for any paperwork FYI. A fiancee has no standing in the service. There is a widespread scam perpetrated by people in West Africa, primarily in Ghana and Nigeria. Continue Reading
