Product Description

Get the Lowdown on Medicare and Carriers’ Rules for Locum Tenens Billing!

 

In today’s mobile society, having a “Locum” or stand in provider has become more commonplace.

The nuances of billing and documentation are a must to know before you start. Just be sure to research your carriers for their policies.
