Product Description

Unravel the mystery of what is, and what is not, included in 0- or 10-day and 90-day global periods.

If you want to avoid a target on your back, it's more important than ever before to avoid coding and billing for services included in a global period.

But with decreased reimbursements, every practice needs to capture all revenue possible. How do you handle this treacherous balancing act? Join Dr. Abbey for this 90-minute event where he'll give you the ins and outs of working under the global surgical package.

In just minutes, you'll learn:

  • What Medicare includes in the Global Package
  • Why modifiers make all the difference. Get the E/M and surgical modifier lowdown and watch your accuracy rate soar.
  • How to keep the feds away: Know when not to bill for a service.
  • Why you shouldn't believe it when you hear that "everything" is included in the global period.
  • Medicare WILL pay for surgical complications - but you need to know when...
  • How to get appropriate reimbursement with a solid understanding of the global surgery concept

Who should attend? Physician Coding Personnel, Billing and Claims Transaction Personnel, Chargemaster Coordinators, Utilization Review Personnel, Financial Analysts, Compliance Personnel, Physicians, Internal Auditing Staff and Other Interested Personnel.
