Product Description

Make sure you know the ins and outs of working with NPPs.

It is vital that the qualification process and the proper credentials are in place for NPPs, not only to be able bill Medicare for their services, but also third party payers.

Join Duane Abbey for this 90 minute audio conference where he will clear up confusion over who has to be where for "incident-to" to be billed.

Dr. Abbey will work through case studies illustrating the credentialing process and the associated billing and reimbursement issues associated with them.

Here's what you will learn:

  • Don’t lump all NPPs under one umbrella! Get carriers’ definitions and regs for NPs, PAs and CNSs.
  • Incident-to is on the OIG’s 2009 checklist – will your current schedule sink you in an audit?
  • Qualifications musts for specific NPPs.
  • Split visit vs. shared visit: Nail down the differences and the documentation requirements for each.
  • Layers upon layers of credentialing? Make sure you know all of the credentialing levels.
  • Non-physician practitioners can make the job easier, but there could be compliance issues lurking in the dark.
  • Plus – Need more information? Dr. Abbey will show you where to look. 

Who should attend? Coding personnel, billing and claims transaction personnel, medical staff organization personnel, chargemaster coordinators, financial analysts, compliance personnel, nurse practitioners, physician’s assistants, clinical nurse specialists, speech-language pathologists, nurse midwives, physicians and other interested personnel.
