Product Description

Warning: Your LTC facility could be hemorrhaging money. Get tips on tackling consolidated billing changes.

Because the PPS Consolidated Billing Rule exceptions change on a quarterly basis, keeping on top of this information -- and knowing where to find it -- is crucial to your long-term care facility's bottom line. Figuring out what exclusions CMS has added and what it's deleted should be a critical part of your routine process before the date of service. Instead of spending hours upon hours searching for the latest exceptions on your own, join our expert speaker Marilyn Mines for this 1-hour audio session to learn everything you need to know about the 2009 PPS Consolidated Billing Rule -- and save your facility thousands of dollars every month.

Here's what you will learn:

  • Don't get taken for an expensive ride. Find out when ambulance services are excluded under Part A. Save your facility thousands of dollars by understanding where to schedule appointments for services.
  • Easily identify whether an ordered service or medication is excluded -- or whether your facility must foot the bill.
  • Do you really need to pay the invoice in full? Find out.
  • Cut through the confusion: When and why certain items are sometimes excluded and sometimes not.
  • Exactly where you need to look online to find exclusion updates from CMS.

Have additional questions about the 2009 PPS Consolidated Billing Rule? You have the floor with the speaker during an interactive Q&A.

Who should attend? Long-term care nurses, billers, coders, and any other member of the interdisciplinary team who is responsible for scheduling or ordering high-end services or medications.

Your registration includes:

  • Flexible enrollment. Scheduling conflict? No problem. This session is also available on CD.
  • Expert answers to your tough questions during the interactive Q&A period.
  • Complimentary attendee package, including the speaker's complete presentation handouts. Keep this quick reference tool close by for future use.
