In this session, Dr. Jones will review some basics of professional billing, specifically time vs. complexity. He will provide a deep dive into the current AMA complexity table with examples specific to hospice care. He will also help providers in hospice care know when they can and can't use certain billing codes when caring for patients on the Medicare Hospice Benefit (MHB). Lastly, for providers who work at programs that provide hospice and palliative care, Dr. Jones will briefly review several new codes for 2024 that can be used when caring for seriously ill patients not yet enrolled in the MHB.
