The time has come. A new ambulatory surgery center (ASC) payment system went into effect on Jan. 1 as part of the Medicare Modernization Act -- and ASCs are scrambling to adjust to both new codes and new reimbursement levels. The new system increases payment groups from nine to 220, expands procedures eligible to be performed in an ASC, and links ASC payment rates to hospital outpatient rates.
That’s a lot of changes – which means a lot of new billing rules and regs to learn. But you don’t have to navigate them alone. Join expert speaker Annette Grady, CPC, CCS-P, CPC-H, CPC-P, CPC-Ortho, for one hour, and learn how to succeed under the new ASC regulations. You’ll learn what regulatory pitfalls to avoid -- and all the new coding ins and outs, such as modifiers, unlisted procedures, and other add-on codes you can bill under the new payment system. With this knowledge, you’ll be able to optimize your ASC’s reimbursement -- even if your specialty was dealt a bad hand in the new regs.
Who should attend: ASC coders, administrators, payers, physicians, and owners.
In this can’t miss session, you’ll learn:
