Restructuring of the Quality Improvement Organization Program in Medicare

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has restructured the Quality Improvement Organization (QIO) Program. CMS’ purpose in doing this has been described as “to further enhance the quality of services to Medicare beneficiaries.” Effective August 1, 2014, KEPRO is the new Beneficiary and Family Centered Care Quality Improvement Organization (BFCC-QIO) for the state of Texas. During this webinar, you will learn about the Medicare services offered by KEPRO, which include reviewing Medicare beneficiary complaints and discharge appeals and providing Immediate Advocacy for immediate concerns. The webinar has been certified for 1.25 hours of participatory continuing legal education credit (no ethics credit). The State Bar of Texas course number is 901300000. Social worker CEUs are also available. This webinar will be held Tuesday, Sept. 2, 2014, from 9:45 - 11:15 a.m. CT. Register today.
