2020 Palmetto GBA Home Health and Hospice Virtual Workshops

Palmetto GBA’s 2020 Home Health and Hospice Workshop series is coming to North and South Carolina. These virtual workshops are designed for home health and hospice providers and their staff to equip them with the tools they need to be successful with Medicare billing, coverage and documentation requirements. These virtual workshops will provide insight for home health and hospice agency staff at all levels. Palmetto GBA’s ultimate goal is to have educated and astute providers who know how to accurately and skillfully apply the information they learn to their documentation and billing practices.
