For the past two years, the Centers for Medicare and Medicare Services (CMS) have been making big changes that are bringing home care into the Medicare Advantage (MA) fold, potentially opening up a huge market.
But changes to MA also bring up so many questions:
- What do home care agencies absolutely need to know about MA?
- What will reimbursement rates be like?
- What are the challenges non-medical home care agencies will face?
- What data should non-medical home care agencies communicate to any MA plans that they try to contract with?
- How do you get started with contracting with an MA plan?
If you’re interested in learning more about the answers to those questions, join CareAcademy, Jack Silverstein from Home Health Care News, and Anne Tumlinson from Anne Tumlinson Innovations for a Medicare Advantage panel.
Both panelists have done extensive research on MA plans and will be on the webinar to answer questions live!
