Now, more than ever before, we're seeing decreasing reimbursements and increased compliance scrutiny. You need every available tool to capture revenue and avoid inaccurate - or even fraudulent - billing.
Modifiers can make all the difference, but only if you use them correctly. Inappropriate use of modifiers can put you at risk for compliance breaches and potential fines if an auditor knocks on your door.
Join nationally recognized coding and documentation speaker Judith L. Blaszczyk RN, CPC, ACS-PM for this informative hour-long session that will pay for itself in accurate reimbursements.
This conference will provide the answers you need when puzzling over whether to append a modifier and if so, which one. Each modifier applicable to pain management will be discussed in depth with specific usage tips and cautions. Actual pain management encounter examples will be utilized to provide guidance in coding specific pain management scenarios.

Who should attend? Coding professionals, billing specialists, practice managers, HIM directors, and compliance officers. Physicians and payer review professionals also benefit.
