Product Description

Congress has changed the rules. It's time to demystify the DRG pre-admission window - don't miss your chance to learn what it's all about.

Bundling vs. unbundling, related vs. unrelated services, diagnostic vs. therapeutic… what does the DRG Pre-Admission Window require, and what does it include?

This complex and often misunderstood rule goes beyond just provider-based clinics, but how far, and who is affected?

Why is June 25, 2010 so important for the DRG Pre-Admission Window?

Join Dr. Duane Abbey, CFP for this revealing 90-minute seminar that will help you make sense out of the chaos. You'll learn how to work with this rule so that you can collect the maximum reimbursement, and reduce your risk of non-compliance. Plus, you'll learn all about the specific guidance within the rule itself.

Get the answers to these burning questions: 

  • Just what does the DRG Pre-Admission Window mean?
  • How do the recent legislative changes affect the DRG Pre-Admission Window?
  • What outpatient services must be bundled into the inpatient billing?
  • What are 'related' services?
  • Why doesn't our QIO understand this rule?
  • Will the RACs look at the DRG Pre-Admission Window?
  • Just what triggers the application of the DRG Pre-Admission Window?
  • Do ER services fall within the window? What about observation?
