Product Description

There Has Been A 350% Increase In Medicare Payments From 2001 - 2009 !! Have You Got Your Due, Or Have You Been Caught Napping As Coding, Billing And Documentation Changed ?? 


The past 10 years have seen significant changes in the diagnostic and procedural coding of sleep studies. The Office of Inspector General has had Polysomnography and Sleep Studies on their list since 2007.  Why the scrutiny?  Could it be the 350%  increase in Medicare payments from 2001 - 2009?

The fact is, over the last few years sleep disorder's diagnostic codes have expanded and the procedure codes have changed as the variables of sleep testing did. Are you using the correct codes in billing?  Are you being reimbursed correctly?  Can your documentation withstand an audit(RAC; CERT; carrier)? If your answer is no, sign up for this 60-minute audio event presented by expert Jill M. Young, CPC, CEDC, CIMC,  and get up to speed on codes for sleep studies. 

Jill Young will walk you through:

  • Modifiers - which ones are key in compliant billing of sleep studies.
  • Types of sleep study - how  documentation helps avoid reimbursement issues.
  • CPT & HCPCS Coding changes - are you using the correct and most up to date codes? 


Here's what you'll learn:
 

  • PAP-NAPS - do modifiers solve the billing issues of these tests?
  • Medical Necessity, without it no payment or payment take backs - what is appropriate compliant documentation and how carriers can differ?
  • Correct, compliant coding for both, the diagnosis and the procedures of sleep studies.
  • Place of service, correct identification and documentation to avoid payment issues.
  • Documentation of type of service, identifying parameters and other necessary elements to keep the carriers happy.
  • Understand why your DME company is bugging you to see C-PAP patients?
