The concept of bundling edits is something that is never taught to physicians. As a physician you assume that what services you perform you get paid for—but that is not the case. All payers have bundling edits that will include some procedures into another procedure – therefore only paying for one. The most widely used edit system for Medicare is called NCCI.
This webinar with expert speaker Dreama Sloan-Kelly, MD, CCS will help physicians understand the maze of NCCI bundling edits, when codes can be unbundled, and when they cannot. The session will also go over compliance issues regarding unbundling inappropriately.
Also, Dr. Sloan-Kelly will show how to download NCCI edits database at no cost; how to read and use the database in a simple format; how to create cheat sheets; and find other payor edits that may differ from Medicare.
