Coding, Billing & Reimbursement for Non-Emergency Care in the ED

Join Duane C. Abbey, Ph.D. for this 60-minute vital event where he'll review the levels and types of services in the ED and differentiate between emergent, urgent and clinical levels of services. This educative session will make you understand the reasons for increasing volumes of urgent and clinical level services in the ED, the increasing needs for fast-tracks and establishment of urgent-care clinics, pressures on Medicare and other third-party payers to create special coding, billing and reimbursement processes for non-emergent care in hospitals’ EDs. Learn  how EMTALA rules and requirements dovetail with non-emergent levels of care.

Also, Duane will examine several case studies illustrating the challenges for non-emergent care in hospitals’ EDs.
