Tuesday, May 16, 2017
1:00-2:30 p.m. Eastern
Kimberly Anderwood Hoy Baker, JD, CPC
June Stark, RN, BSN, MEd
Level of Program:
The Notice of Observation Treatment and Implication for Care Eligibility (NOTICE) Act and Medicare Outpatient Observation Notice (MOON) have been a source of regulatory and operational confusion for hospitals since they were introduced last year. Early evaluation of successes and failures regarding timing and documentation of MOON delivery is critical for organizations as they determine whether their processes should be modified.
Join HCPro instructors Kimberly Anderwood Hoy Baker, JD, CPC, and June Stark, RN, BSN, MEd, as they analyze regulatory guidance and discuss nationwide operational strategies for effective NOTICE Act and MOON compliance. The speakers will also explain NOTICE Act requirements and how to identify which patients should receive the MOON. Case studies and polling questions will help audience members gain insight into how others are tackling MOON delivery and documentation.
At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:
- Discuss NOTICE Act requirements and CMS definitions of patients who should receive the MOON
- Explain strategies for operationalizing the NOTICE Act and MOON delivery
- Identify pros and cons of different MOON delivery methods
- Recognize the impact of the NOTICE Act and MOON on various hospital departments
