    Exclamation Home Health Billing To Medicare

    AAPC: Back to School
    Evening everyone,

    I have a question for those of you who do billing for home health agencies. How do you do it for Medicare? I am teaching a billing and coding course and my supervisor asked me to try and pull together a quick presentation on how to bill this. My background is mainly in physician billing and was wondering if anyone could give me a hand so I can get her this as quickly as possible. I do know something about that it bills in 30-60 blocks but beyond that nothing else.

    And if possible can you give me an idea as to what software is used when billing it? I know some of the billing software can't be used for certain types of billing so I was just wanting to get as much information as I possibly can to present to her.

    Also I will give credit if you like for helping me with this.

    Thank you in advance to any one who can help me.

    Are you talking about actual home health agency billing or physician billing for home health supervision?
