CPI Works to Reduce Burden on Providers
Spend more time with your patients, less on Medicare documentation.
Making the medical review process easier to understand and simplifying documentation are two CPI initiatives aimed at reducing burden on providers. We recently updated our website to help explain the medical review process called Targeted Probe and Educate (TPE), and to describe the work we’re doing to simplify documentation requirements.
Mapping Market Saturation
We’ve updated the market saturation tool with even more data.
CPI’s market saturation tool shows the relationship, in population, between providers and beneficiaries within a chosen geographical location. How many home health providers are located in your zip code? What is the average number of physical & occupational therapy patients per provider in your county? Use the map to answer questions about the availability of care and the use of selected services, by population.
Healthcare Fraud Prevention Partnership (HFPP) Continues to Grow
Collectively their membership represents 74% of covered lives in the United States.
Over the last few months, the HFPP has gained several new members including: AIRIO Health Plan, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona, District of Columbia Department of Health Care Finance, Care N’ Care, Louisiana Office of Attorney General – MFCU, and Vision Service Plan. They, along with over 100 other organizations, now enjoy the benefits that this voluntary, public-private partnership provides. Should your organization consider joining others from across the federal government, state and local government agencies, law enforcement, private health insurance plans, employer organizations, and healthcare anti-fraud associations to identify and reduce fraud, waste, and abuse across the healthcare sector? Watch this video to see what current members have to say about this unique and collaborative data-sharing partnership.
