Product Description

Do you have to guess when wondering what CMS really wants to know about physician practices in order to enroll? Get the real information.

Join expert Duane C. Abbey, Ph.D., for this in-depth look at the CMS-855-B form. You’ll learn why physicians and practitioners have to concern themselves with multiple forms and what the revalidation program is. Do you know what to do if your group practice is a partnership of professional corporations? Do you know why the 855-B form is so long? Do you know how to complete and file these forms? Abbey will show you where to find guidance.

In this Webinar, you’ll find solutions that will make sense of the CMS 855-B. For instance, do you know if non-physician practitioners are treated different relative to the CMS 855 forms? Do you know who should be updating and maintaining your CMS-855 forms at your clinic? Do you know why provider-based clinics are different relative to the CMS-855-B? Do you know how incident-to billing affects the CMS-855-B?
