Product Description

What are the do's and don’ts of critical care for internal medicine?

Critical Care is a complex level care service that can be performed regardless of location (ICU, Hospital floor, Emergency Room, office).  It is not just for care in the Intensive Care Unit. Conversely just because a patient is in an Intensive Care Unit, it is not appropriate to bill Critical care - the level of intensity and medical necessity must be met. Documentation, as always is the key to meet these requirements. Critical Care is “the direct delivery by a physician of medical care for a critically ill or critically injured patient.”

In this 60 minutes audio conference, our expert speaker Jill M. Young, CPC, CEDC, CIMC, will give you an understanding of what procedures are bundled into the Critical Care codes, and what are not. Without this knowledge, you'll miss many reimbursement opportunities that are costly to your practice. The conference will offer simple steps to avoid these errors.

Our speaker, Jill will offer you documentation tips and provide you tools that will help you to prove medical necessity; in diagnosis selection; to avoid missed billable procedures; and to capture time correctly.

Register today and understand where to find Medicare and other carrier's policies on critical care and discerning the differences to capture everything you need to effectively bill for the care.
