    Post-acute transfers will be greatly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. While all hospitals should be performing a retrospective review of claims potentially impacted by the Post-acute Transfer Rule (PACT), these claims will become increasingly more complex in the coming days. Whether this retrospective review is conducted internally or by an external vendor, the review must be done to ensure that claims are accurate and in accordance with the PACT. 

    There are mistakes that often occur during normal retrospective Transfer DRG reviews that can result in compliance concerns for hospitals. These issues will be magnified by COVID-19. 

    During this webinar Mary Devine, Senior Director of Revenue Cycle Services, will explain: 

    - The impact of COVID-19 on post-acute transfers and what to watch out for right now. 

    - Why overreliance on the Common Working File can lead to errors.

    - Why clinical reviews of claims and verification with post-acute providers are a necessary part of the review process, especially for COVID-19 related claims.

    - Why beginning the retrospective review too close to the discharge date can cause errors.

    - Why overpayment reviews are vital and the latest OIG activities related to overpayment audits.
