Medicare Fundamentals Part 9: Beneficiary Notices Initiative On-Demand Workshop
Medicare beneficiaries have protections related to financial liability and appeal rights. A beneficiary notice is a required CMS form that notifies the beneficiary or their representative that the facility believes Medicare will no longer pay for the services and that financial liability will be transferred to beneficiary and provides details on how to appeal this decision. Following Medicare Fundamentals Part 9: Beneficiary Notices Initiative, you will be able to explain the reasons to end Medicare coverage and to identify what required documents must be delivered to the resident and when. This session includes step-by-step instruction on completion of the required forms, as well as examples and popular myths and facts surrounding the beneficiary notices initiative.
