Ensuring accurate documentation to establish medical necessity is critical, specially when the definition of medical necessity vary depending on who you are - physician, biller, payer, coder or someone else in the Medicare Reimbursement function. You need your physicians and staff to document appropriately to ensure that you have everything you need for an Optimized Reimbursement Cycle. You have to be updated through a number of different changes - right from filing appeals for accurate reimbursement, getting familiar with the guidelines on the right appeal language, links and advice on the new ABN forms and much more.
