Transitional Care Management (TCM) procedure codes were introduced in 2013 to give providers the opportunity to be reimbursed for their efforts in promoting positive outcomes for patients transitioning from a facility setting to the community. Active management of patients post-discharge helps improve patient outcomes. Tune in to this webinar by Maryann C. Palmeter, CPC, CENTC, to find out which providers are eligible to bill for this service, what is required to bill for the service, how to overcome some of the inherent billing and documentation challenges, and how the service can improve patient relations and satisfaction.
The audience will learn which procedure codes to report, what needs to be documented, who may perform each aspect of this service, when the service may be billed, what is bundled into the service, and what may be reported separately. Because CMS regulations are not the same as those outlined in the AMA’s CPT® manual, attendees will receive a detailed chart which outlines the difference in these two sets of guidelines.
Who should attend: Auditors, Coders, Compliance Professionals, Non-Physician Practitioners, Physicians, Practice Administrators and Medical Billers.
