Product Description

We have already seen delays in claims payment, cancellation of billing privileges and false claims liability for a number of physician practices and medical centers that did not enroll or maintain their Medicare enrollment status. The whole process is complex and tricky, with lots of reporting requirements for issues that might otherwise seem insignificant. Frequent changes on Medicare provider enrollment requirements make it difficult to know exactly what to do next, how to do it, and when. And you know, a single mistake on your Medicare enrollment can cost you big. This session will give you a rundown on reasons for why you have to concern yourself with multiple forms and what the revalidation program is. You’ll find solutions that will make sense of the CMS 855-B and answer doubts like - Are non-physician practitioners treated differently relative to the CMS 855 forms? Who should be updating and maintaining your CMS-855 forms at your office? Why provider-based clinics are different relative to the CMS-855-B? How incident-to billing affects the CMS-855-B?
