Product Description

Attorney reveals how to protect yourself and your practice from liability for coding errors.

Billers and coders today are under constant pressure to perform their duties quickly and accurately, and are often required to take aggressive stands with payers. Sometimes coders' tasks can easily approach or even cross the boundaries of lawful or professional conduct. But engaging in improper conduct can result in not only losses to the practice, but also in personal biller and coder liability. So billing and coding staff must be aware at all times of their legal and ethical obligations.

Want to make sure your billing and coding practices are in the clear? Join nationally-known healthcare attorney Wayne J. Miller, Esq., for this 90-minute teleconference. He'll explore with you the basic legal standards and ethical conduct principles that billers and coders must follow. You'll hear common ethical scenarios and learn possible approaches for addressing. You'll also hear case examples of where billers and coders were held personally responsible -- and how you can avoid falling into the same trap.

Here’s a sampling of what you’ll learn:

  • Best practices to avoid "crossing the line" in ethically difficult situations.
  • When the practice is liable -- and when you may be instead.
  • Biller and coder roles in audits and investigations of fraudulent billing practices.
  • Adopt documentation practices that protect your personal interests but also respect medical office confidentiality standards.
  • Suspect unlawful or unethical conduct by a doctor or practice? Here's what to do.
  • When biller and coder malpractice insurance can help -- and when it doesn't.
