Palmetto GBA is pleased to announce the 2012 Palmetto GBA Home Health workshop series. This series is designed for home health providers, billers, administrative staff and clinicians to equip them with the tools they need to be successful with Medicare billing and documentation. This workshop will provide insight for new, intermediate or advanced staff; however, we suggest that providers who are new to Medicare attend online learning courses for beginners.

Once again, Palmetto GBA has teamed up with several state associations for the annual workshop series. Palmetto GBA will be partnering with the Midwest Care Alliance for a home health session on Tuesday, April 10, 2012, at the Online Computer Library Center.
