Product Description

Demystify the provider-based rule (PBR) with these tips.

Hospitals are ever increasingly establishing provider-based clinics of all types.  The provider-based rule (PBR) is complex, and there are definite ambiguities.  

While hospitals can enjoy increased revenues from provider-based clinics, compliance with all the rules and regulations is challenging.  Recent changes in the supervisory requirements for provider-based operations have created confusion and new compliance challenges.  

In this workshop, you’ll examine the overall purpose and function of the provider-based rule as well as critical information concerning physician supervisory changes. Additionally, you’ll tack the overall compliance issues surrounding provider-based status in the context of conducting an audit.

This session will help you:

  • Go in-depth the Provider-Based Rule (PBR).
  • Highlight the criteria that clinics must achieve to be recognized as provider-based.
  • Update the critical physician supervisory rule changes.
  • Follow the documentation requirements relative to physician supervision requirements.
  • Appreciate the different areas in which the PBR applies.
  • Figure out why the attestation and request for determination processes are so important.
  • Determine the need for updating and the documentation of organizational structuring relative to the PBR.
  • Review the process for assessing current and/or potential provider-based situations.
  • Take advantage of economic benefits versus the compliance requirements.
  • Understand the relationship of PBR relative to the Conditions for Payment, Conditions of Participation and gaining billing privileges.
  • Work through several case studies.
