Product Description

Misinterpret these rules – or overlook CPT rules – and you could be facing paybacks.

If you accidentally apply CMS consult guidelines across the board, your over-restrictive requirements could cost your group money. The solution: Join coding expert Jennifer Godreau for this 1-hour audio video conference, and learn how to cut through the bureaucracy -- and get the scoop on 3, 4, or 5 consult R’s. Learn who counts as an appropriate source, what to ask to determine if a transfer of care has been achieved, how not to get stuck with footing a pre-op consult bill, and more…

Here's what you will learn:

  • A 2-prong test that will make transfer of care black and white.
  • Get confident with IDing consult qualifiers, Jennifer will walk you through scenarios.
  • The lowdown on non-physicians providing consults -- and the pitfall you may not see coming.
  • Surprise: Medicare pre-op consult coverage is possible -- here’s what most coders miss.
  • Can a physician who has more expertise in an area provide a consult to her same “specialty” partner? Get the answer here.

Have additional questions? You have the floor with the speaker during an interactive Q&A.

Who should attend? Educators, compliance directors, coders, physicians, and billers tired of tackling varying advice on reporting consultations, rather than office or inpatient E/M services.

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.
  • One low price for all the staff you can stuff into a conference room.
