Product Description

Yes, you're getting paid. But your hospital physician services claims could be planting red flags for fraud. 

Did the numbers on the claim pass the edit system? It doesn't matter. You might have to return the money if you're audited… AND pay some painful fines to boot. Picture this: The hospital has adopted non-compliant, pre-printed consultation request forms, another office has used YOUR primary diagnosis, and you're confused about how to document start and stop times for hospital services --- sounds like an anxiety attack waiting to happen, right? Not if you join expert coder Jill Young, CPC for this 1-hour, information-packed survival seminar. Jill will guide you through the tricky rules in risky billing areas to make sure you bill your hospital physician services with confidence and compliance.

Here's a sneak peek at this session's highlights:

  • Make sure you know how concurrent care works. Here's what you NEED to know.
  • Pre-operative paperwork – is it a consultation or just a "paperwork" visit prior to hospitalization?
  • Tips for a pre-operative consult and how it impacts your continued care of the patient.
  • Consultations – is the hospital asking for them nicely (and compliantly)?
  • Your concept of split/shared visits may change -- why "where" is important.
  • Are you getting money you're not entitled to? Never claim consultations under split/shared — here's why.
  • How to prove YOU were the one providing critical care in a dispute.
  • And much more...
