Hospital chargemaster maintenance in itself is quite a laborious task, which is further complicated by the frequently changing coding and reimbursement rules. It's imperative for healthcare providers and facilities to review their chargemaster periodically to ensure compliance with coding standards and federal, state, and commercial payer rules. A miss here can result in claim denials, loss of reimbursement, repayment, and costly, time-consuming litigations.
Join expert speaker Duane C. Abbey in this information-packed audio conference, where he will walk you through a carefully crafted systematic process to audit a chargemaster and help you address your compliance concerns. Abbey will show you how to keep up with all the CPT/HCPCS coding changes, and explain their impacts on the chargemaster. He will also discuss how to balance revenue optimization while still being compliant; whether there should be written chargemaster policies and procedures; about drugs and injections; about nursing services; whether you should be concerned about the cost report; and much more!
After attending this live audio conference, you will learn how clinical personnel should be involved in a chargemaster audit; about different kinds of chargemaster audits; what kinds of policy decisions must be made with the chargemaster; how supplies should be handled; understand why charges are such a big deal; why the revenue codes are sometimes ambiguous; why hospital pricing is such a sensitive area; and much more as shown in the Session Highlights and conference Agenda below.
