Hospice Comprehensive Error Rate Testing (CERT) Information

Provider Outreach and Education (POE) has focused on reducing the CERT error rate at every educational event we have. In continuing our promise to partner with our providers to reduce the CERT error rate we are using data analysis to help identify the most common CERT errors and by state.

As identified on the maps below, we have broken out each of our sixteen states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas provided CERT-specific data. Please use this tool and review the most common errors and the tips to avoid the error. We have provided specific examples under the CERT Reviewer Error.

We continue to partner with our providers to provide helpful education tools and are excited to add this enhancement to our CERT link under the HHH website.
