Presented by: Melinda A. Gaboury, COS-C

Now that the new year is here, if your RAP is not submitted and accepted in five days, your home health agency will face a hefty penalty. Adjusting to this time frame will require workflow and policy changes, even as agencies are still dealing with COVID-19 response.

Attend this webinar to get a step-by-step plan for constructing a speedy workflow. You’ll be able to put together all the pieces needed for full and accurate payment—including the correct HIPPS code—without compromising quality patient care.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Avoid payment penalties related to untimely RAPs
  • Implement a workflow policy for timely RAPs
  • Develop a smooth process with your EMR vendor that includes triggers for possible penalties
  • Adopt a tracking mechanism to ensure RAPs are submitted and accepted
  • Prevent more payment penalties when the case is a LUPA


  • Review of CMS requirements for RAP submissions
  • How the timing of OASIS and coding fits in
  • Strategies to work with your EMR to smooth the process
  • Ways to track all of the pieces using dashboards
  • Discussion of how LUPA periods could lead to even more penalties
  • Live Q&A
