Are you reading this bold message from HHS as a signal that CMS waivers may be here to stay? After all, many ACOs and managed payers have permanently eliminated the 3-day qualifying stay and have expanded on skill in place options. Will CMS follow suit?
- Education to help clinical & interdisciplinary teams to identify when patients are deemed eligible and to assure proper documentation for admissions or skill in place criteria. (In service to the industry, HealthPRO Heritage offers consulting services and two short webinars: "Winning with Waivers: Part I" and "Winning With Waivers: Part II")
- Communication Mechanisms that enhance collaboration with physicians, home health, senior living partners and hospital systems (to share documentation; to receive referrals without a 3-day stay, to avoid unnecessary hospitalizations, etc.)
- Trusted Advisors to seek support from dedicated experts like those at HealthPRO Heritage for strategies to leverage the advantages of the PHE extension.
