hha supervision

  1. How often does your hospice company require hha supervisions ? Does anyone know medicare guidelines? I always though medicare was 28 days in person and q2w indirect.

    Medicare guidelines say every 60 days direct and every 2 weeks indirect. But since I tend to be a bit scatterbrained and don't always remember from one week to the next if I did an indirect supervision, I do one with each visit. My company's policy is one RN visit weekly or more, so it is done weekly.

    Check your state requirements...CMS says one thing but some states, Alaska for instance, has a stricter requirement for supervision.
