The End of HHABN...Which Notification to Give When


Midwest Care Alliance is teaming up with the
Iowa Alliance in Home Care to offer

 The End of HHABN...
Which Notification to Give When

Tuesday, October 29, 2013
3:00 - 4:00 pm EST


Enjoy the convenience and cost-efficiency of a webinar workshop. There is no travel time involved and no limit to the number of attendees from your agency who may participate. Each organization that registers will be sent log-on information and handouts. Please provide a valid email address.

Ever get confused which of the CMS forms to give when, and in what situations?  As of December 2013, the Home Health Advance Beneficiary Notice (HHABN) is being retired and home health agencies will be giving two new forms:  The Advanced Beneficiary Notice (the ABN, not the HHABN) or the Home Health Change in Care Notice (HHCCN).  The Notice of Medicare Non-coverage (NOMNC) will also remain in effect.  Why do we have to give these?  This session will break down all of the when, what and whys of the Medicare patient notification forms and apply them in real-life situations.  Forms will be provided, so you can take them back and make sure you have the right ones in place and clarity to share with staff on how to use them.

After this webinar you will be able to:

  • Discuss the history and necessity of the patient notice forms (including conditions of participation)
  • Identify the types of forms and situations when the notices should be provided
  • Provide examples of how to fill out the forms appropriately, per CMS directives

Those who will benefit from this webinar:
Medicare certified home health agencies, supervisors/managers, leadership staff, clinicians, case managers and quality/compliance managers.

Presented by:
