Product Description

 It's critical to know how to avoid "crossing the line". 

You're aware that engaging in improper conduct can result in not only losses to the practice, but also in personal liabilities.

The stakes are even higher now because regulatory agencies are targeting billers and coders as well as providers in fraud and Stark law cases.

Want to make sure your billing and coding practices are in the clear?

Join nationally-known healthcare attorney Wayne J. Miller, Esq., for this 90-minute seminar. He'll explore the basic legal standards and ethical conduct principles that billers and coders must follow. You'll hear common ethical scenarios and learn possible approaches for addressing each.

You'll also hear case examples of where billers and coders were held personally responsible -- and how you can avoid falling into the same trap.

Your ethical foundation for coding begins with:

  • Best practices to avoid "crossing the line" in ethically difficult situations.
  • When the practice is liable -- and when you may be instead.
  • Know what to do if you are the target of an audit and investigation of fraudulent billing practices.
  • Lessons learned: how ethical behavior saves billers and coders and their employers from more serious penalties
  • Protect your personal interests in improper billing cases: documentation practices you can't live without.
  • Suspect unlawful or unethical conduct by a doctor or practice? Here's what you need to do.
  • When biller and coder or practice malpractice insurance can help you -- and when it doesn't.

Who should attend? Billers and coders in any healthcare setting, as well as their managers.
