Product Description

Join us for this on demand webinar series “Provider-Based Clinics & Meeting the Physician Supervision Challenge” on Wednesday - 7th Aug, 2013. You will get to understand the economic advantages of provider-based clinics and the special requirements and compliance concerns associated with provider-based status. Also, understand the steps you need to create and/or convert to a provider-based clinic and how you can maintain the CMS 855 forms as well as be vigilant about the coding and billing issues for provider-based clinics. You will also get valuable insights on the specific requirements for physician supervision and understand what the Medicare program really demands -  is this solely a Medicare issue, what additional changes to anticipate in the future, the compliance implications, and will this ever become a RAC issue.
