Product Description

When are complementary services billable to Medicare? Find the answer, and more!

Small clinics, large groups and hospital affiliated practices are increasingly recognizing the need to integrate complementary and holistic health care (chiropractic, naturopathic, acupuncture etc) in addition to traditional medicine in their practice.

Do you know how to compliantly meld these alternative therapies with medical care under one roof or setting? Apart from complying from state laws, you have to insure that such services are provided within the scope of licensure with appropriate supervision. Also, there are restrictions on consultations and ancillary services. Combine that with applicable fraud & abuse, incident to, and self referral laws, and you are in a sticky situation.

Join expert speaker Wayne J. Miller, Esq. in this audio session as he guides you to avoid initial regulatory glitches when adding complementary and holistic care services. He will help you identify issues that are commonly raised, and suggest possible alternative approaches. Plus, you will know about the best practices for possible sticky issues, such as whether traditional medical supervision is always necessary, how to ensure consistent medical record entries, and how to properly compensate non-physician professionals, as well as how to properly bill for non-traditional services.
