You can end up spending hours digging for information, and still not be sure if you’re correctly interpreting and reporting the medical procedures and services. But you must be able to quickly spot the documentation gaps that are burning a hole in your revenue – or you will be at increased risk of payment denials and overpayment demands.
In this information-packed webinar, anesthesia coding and billing specialist Kelly Dennis will walk you through the available updates and current hot topics to steer your practice in the right direction for 2019. Dennis will bring you up to speed with the latest anesthesia-related coding and billing nuances, review the areas where anesthesia practices are most at risk, and arm you with the information you will need to prepare for future changes.
Dennis will discuss the coding changes for 2018 and any available changes for 2019, review anesthesia-related quality measures and reporting, and explain the changes to CMS quality programs. She will decode anesthesia billing for screening colonoscopy and EGD procedures, show you how the OIG work plan affects your practice, point out the risk areas, and teach you how to improve your documentation.
