Product Description

Nabbing proper reimbursement for endoscopy anesthesia isn't as hard as you think -- we'll show you how.

Are payers covering anesthesia for GI endoscopies? Answer: Only if you know the medical necessity requirements like the back of your hand. You could be losing deserved payments if you are at all foggy on endoscopic anesthesia coverage policies and coding and billing essentials. In this 1-hour audio session with coding expert Samantha Mullins, you'll learn not only how to properly bill for endoscopic anesthesia, but also your legal liability and so much more.

Here's what you will learn:

  • Get a clear understanding of coverage policies for endoscopic anesthesia.
  • Who's qualified to administer the anesthesia? If you don't know, you risk a stack of denials.
  • Challenges you'll face with getting payers to reimburse for anesthesia for GI endoscopies -- and how to overcome them.
  • Whether you can get paid for anesthesia used for screenings. The answer may surprise you.
  • What's considered medically necessary? Find out how to document properly to get your fair payment.
