I am now offering consulting services for hospices and/or attorneys related to hospice appeals. In regards to attorneys, I can support either the hospice or the state's position.
I have 30 years of case review experience, the past 8 specifically in hospice and palliative medicine. Most recently I worked for Health Integrity (now Qlarant) conducting hospice case reviews for ZPIC, MIC, and UPIC for CMS, investigating fraud, waste, and abuse. I have supported cases through the mediation and appeal process and can testify in ALJ cases. I've also done many other types of case review in my career and testified in hearings. I am board certified in FP, OMM/NMM, QA/UR/RM (ABQAURP) and hospice and palliative medicine.
