Capitalize on Expert Advice for Interpreting F2F, PPS, Coding, and Billing

As a condition for payment, Medicare requires that physicians who certify home health eligibility provide appropriate supporting documentation of face-to-face encounters for the initial episodes of care. The face-to-face encounter alone does not satisfy the requirement.

In a review performed by the Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General (OIG), 32% of claims for initial episodes of home health care either had no face-to-face documents or had face-to-face documents that lacked elements required by Medicare.
