Product Description

Details count: Expert tips and case studies conquer your consultation confusion.

The definition of consultation is a confusing one because these claims have to meet so many conditions. And one wrong assumption can land you in hot water. For instance, if you believe specialists can always charge a consultation, you’re setting yourself up for miscoding and lost reimbursement.

Review the complicated consultation criteria by joining expert speaker Tina Landskroener, CCS-P, CPC during this 1-hour audioconference. By pinpointing mistakes many practices make, what documentation you must have, and the roles that you and your physician should play, you’ll be submitting perfect consultation claims in no time.

Who should attend: Anyone involved in consultation claims, including physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, coders, clinical staff, management, and insurance clerks who verify and authorize coverage.

Here's a sampling of what you’ll learn:

  • Proper consultation documentation is vital ... find out why.
  • Case studies can help -- and Tina will demonstrate what to do for each one she presents.
  • How to handle consultations initiated by patients ... and keep your criteria straight.
