Product Description

More and more, practices are being asked to return money because of audit findings related to diagnosis, management and/or treatment of infertility.

Infertility can be caused for many reasons, and often a surgical procedure or medical treatment, rather than artificial reproductive technology, will be the cure for the patient.  Understanding what the payer sees in relation to their coverage criteria may assist practices that deal with patients who cannot conceive. 

Join Melanie Witt to find out what States allow coverage for infertility management and how to make sure your patients understand the issues when they present because they can’t get pregnant. 

Understanding starts with the causes of infertility and the testing and treatment choices, and in this session you will get the full picture. 

Armed with the tools and knowledge you will code correctly and be paid for infertility services despite coverage issues when the patient is your partner in the cure.

Check out what's covered:

  •  Not sure which condition the patient has? Gain a clear understanding of various types of infertility and testing protocols.Not all payers are clear about what is covered and what is not. 
  • This session will dissect the coverage and coding issues surrounding infertility services
  • Does the state you practice in have a mandate for coverage? At the end of this conference you will know for sure.
  • When is it safe to use a non-infertility diagnosis? Learn correct diagnostic coding strategies for infertility procedures
  • Over time, most of us face the same issues with regard to care rendered to patients seeking help with infertility issues. Pick up pointers on obtaining proper reimbursement in common situations

Who should attend? Physicians, coders, billers, practice managers
