Product Description

Avoid Denials and Compliance Risks by Understanding the NCCI Manual Beyond the Edits

 

It’s often the case that many coders and billers are told they can or can't bill something without understanding the source of that restriction or the "why" behind it. Others may be creating a compliance risk by not understanding why something is always denied, and as a result, continuing to bill it anyway.

This session with expert speaker Kim Huey will take you to the source of the information and explain its correct application. She will also discuss the compliance risks and other consequences of not understanding and applying the information correctly. You will gain an understanding of the NCCI manual beyond the edits and will get examples of types of edits. You will learn how to use the Add-on Code Tables and understand the Medically Unlikely Edits.
