Product Description

Comply with MACRA’s Revised QPP Regulations to Increase Reimbursement in 2019


If coming to terms every year with the new, changed, and obsolete CPT® codes wasn't challenging enough, you can trust CMS to make it even tougher the next year. It has now made changes to MACRA's QPP (Quality Payment Program) for 2019, which will affect your coding, billing, and reimbursements. And if you're not on top of these changes, claim denials and lawsuits are among the two unwelcome outcomes you can expect in 2019.

Get the right insight into MACRA and its impact on your coding and billing for 2019 in this enlightening audio conference by coding and reimbursement consultant Kim Huey. Huey will walk you through the new diagnosis coding guidelines, and show you how to document and code to paint an accurate picture of the patients you are treating. She will explain the impact of words such as “with”, “due to”, “caused by”, “secondary to”; walk you through the latest updates; and explain how reporting preventive medicine codes will impact quality reporting and reimbursement in 2019.

After attending this session, you will be confident in your ability to improve clinical documentation in your office, and your coders will be better prepared to fulfill their new job requirements in 2019. You will know how your quality rating will be made public—and how to talk to your patients about it. You will know what accommodations are made for small practices; how to document disease processes to accurately capture acuity; when “history of” is important—and above all, you will be better prepared to avoid claim denials in 2019!
