Product Description

Don't let documentation shortfalls chase away your ambulance-services reimbursement.

If you aren't up-to-speed on your ambulance-services coding and compliance, you'll soon face a mountain of denials. From documentation and charge capture issues to medical necessity pitfalls and the Medicare Ambulance Fee Schedule, you've got a lot on your plate when billing ambulance services. Join our expert, Dr. Duane C. Abbey, for this informative 90-minute audio and video session that will arm you with real-life scenarios and the strategies you need to get proper reimbursement for ambulance services.

Here's what you will learn:

  • Stay compliant at all times with these tips on coding and claims requirements.
  • Get a crucial review of the levels and types of ambulance services in use -- and the hospital chargemaster setup.
