Product Description

Open your eyes to the latest sleep study billing challenges.

If you code or bill for sleep studies, 2008’s challenges could be a nightmare if you don’t know the ropes. The HHS Office of Inspector General (OIG) has listed "Appropriateness of Medicare Payments for Polysomnography" in its 2008 Workplan -- which means the feds are looking to audit you for coding mistakes. In addition, CMS recently released a new policy on IDTFs, so you have your hands full.

Find out how these issues impact your sleep lab today -- and learn savvy tips on ensuring your billing is compliant in this 1-hour teleconference. Sleep disorder coding expert Jill Young, CPC-EDS will help you tackle the new IDTF policy, discuss common coding and billing questions and teach you how to pinpoint compliance shortcomings before the feds do.

Who should attend: All specialty billers who are involved in coding and billing polysomnographies, as well as those considering involvement with a sleep lab.
