These workshops will provide insight for hospice agency staff at all levels. However, we do suggest that providers who are new to Medicare, or have new staff, attend our online learning courses for beginners at Basic billing and other online educational resources can be found by accessing the Learning and Education link under the Education/Events option at the top of the page. 

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. Palmetto GBA’s goal is to educate providers on the most up-to-date information and apply skillful techniques to their documentation and billing practices.
