The Notice of Admission -
the RAP Successor
Friday, January 28, 2022
10:00 am – 11:00 am CST **
** Recording available for one month
The Notice of Admission (NOA) in 2022 is the next big issue in billing Medicare payers for Home Health services. The Request for Anticipated Payment had no associated reimbursement in 2021 but carried a monetary penalty if not filed timely and the same will be true for the NOA. The NOA potentially carries a more significant potential penalty and agencies must be prepared. The NOA is filed ONLY at the Start of Care for patients vs. every 30 days as the RAP was. This session will review some of the key areas of concern with the NOA and guide agencies in the direction of full compliance.
1. Review the details for NOA regulation from the 2022 Home Health Final Rule.
2. Review statistics regarding the No Pay RAP.
3. Outline the NOA timely filing penalty and how agencies should monitor.
4. Review Claims Processing Manual for Updates.
5. Detail the plan of attack for agencies to succeed with NOA implementation in 2022.
