They partner with you to achieve efficiency and compliance, improve your workflow, eliminate costly medical billing and coding errors, and accelerate cash flow.

SimiTree's Coding and OASIS experts improve clinical accuracy and documentation compliance.

When SimiTree experts review an OASIS, they scrutinize its accuracy based on medical documentation, OASIS guidelines, and CMS rulings. This competent, certified and experienced team makes recommendations or changes (you decide which) along with a rationale to the clinician for acknowledgment and finalization. Your home health and hospice agency will benefit from the following medical and healthcare billing and coding services:

  • SimiTree makes certain the POC is defendable and compliant. Your clinically certified team will review all necessary documents to assist your staff in completing a compliant and defendable Plan of Care.

  • Review Choice Demonstration (RCD) Review and Submissions: SimiTree’s knowledgeable RCD experts handle the work for agencies, including submissions. Have a backlog of pre-claim review submissions? SimiTree can assist you with that backlog. When it’s time to make a choice in the next selection cycle, SimiTree offers consulting services to help agencies choose between pre-claim or post-payment review, depending on circumstances unique to their organizations. Learn more.

  • QAPI Outsourcing: SimiTree helps agencies develop effective programs to address quality of care in key areas scored by payers, including bed and toilet transfers, bathing, re-hospitalizations, and more.
