If you’re receiving denials from Medicare, one possibility is that you’re running up against medically unlikely edits (MUEs). The edits, which are designed to prevent overpayments caused by gross billing errors, usually a result of clerical or billing systems’ mistakes, often confuse even veteran coders.
Ensure you’re not letting edits like these wreak havoc on your practice’s coding and reimbursement by uncovering the truth about the National Correct Coding Initiative (NCCI).
Many in this field 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 audio conference, presented by Kim Huey, MJ, CHC, CPC, CCS-P, PCS, CPCO, will bring you to the source of NCCI information and explains its correct application in your practice - as well as the consequences of not understanding and applying the information correctly.
Who should attend?
Physicians, coders, billers and managers in all specialties – but especially surgical specialties.
