The NCCI edits happen quarterly, and if you’re not updating your coding process accordingly, you are inviting denials and lost reimbursement. Understanding NCCI edits and incorporating them into your coding process is critical to correct coding, reimbursement and reducing denials. Many coders and billers have been told they can or can't bill something without understanding the source of that restriction or the "why" behind it. Others may not understand why something is always denied, but they keep billing it anyway - creating a compliance risk.
This session by expert speaker Kim Huey, MJ, CHC, CPC, CCS-P, PCS, CPCO, takes you to the source of the NCCI information and explains its correct application - as well as the consequences of not understanding and applying the information correctly. The October 2016 changes will also be taken up for review during the session.
This session will also review additions and deletions of Bundling Edits according to October 2016 updates:
