Product Description

Hospital-based clinics: Physician supervision could be driving your bottom line.

CMS has clarified physician supervision for hospital based clinics. But direct supervision of non-physician practitioners can mean a lot of different things, especially when it comes to compliance and reimbursement for Incident to billing.

Whether the hospital clinic is located in the hospital, on the campus or even if it stands alone 3 miles away from the hospital, not only do you need to know CMS's policy -- you need to understand the new clarifications, too.

During this 90-minute audio event, let expert Dr. Duane Abbey show you the ropes to help you ensure supervision for compliance in your facility.  Not only will Dr. Abbey review the Provider-Based Rule (PBR), he will show you how this affects and applies to your specific situation.

Highlights of this session with Dr. Abbey are:

  • Economic perks of Provider-Based Status — what they are and how to take advantage of them.
  • Watch out: Avoid these compliance traps for provider-based clinics.
  • Policy ‘Change’ vs. ‘Clarification’ – The difference may surprise you.
  • RAC audits can happen — here's how to protect yourself if requirements change or for retroactive application of policy changes. 
  • Real-life Physician Supervision Case Studies: Dr. Abbey will show you how these definitions really work. 

Who should attend? All personnel involved with provider-based clinics and/or clinical operations, compliance personnel, coding and billing personnel. Nursing staff and interested physicians are encouraged to attend.
