VNAA will hold a Public Policy Council conference call on Wednesday, April 30 from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. to update members on how to best address problems with face-to-face documentation. Register for the call here.

VNAA identified problems with face-to-face documentation as top priority in a March 26 meeting held with high level officials from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Difficulties with physician narratives and burdensome audits by Medicare Administrative Contractors were a hot topic at VNAA's Annual Meeting April 1-4 in Nevada.

VNAA's campaign to change the face-to-face document is engaging state home health associations as well as physician and hospital groups to broaden support for changes to the face-to-face requirement. VNAA has shared a letter from the Massachusetts Medical Association with CMS to demonstrate physician support for change. Join the call on April 30 to learn how you can help.
