Product Description

Avoid common ASC modifier mistakes that can cost you big-time.

Ambulatory Surgery Centers (ASCs) use only a few select modifiers, but physicians use many more modifiers that you can't put on ASC reportable claims. And all too often the physician records coder is also in charge of ASC records, which opens the door for both compliance risks and a loss of justified revenue.

Make sure you know the special rules for ASC modifiers during this important 1-hour teleconference with expert speaker Joanne Schade-Boyce, RDH, MS, CPC, ACS, PCS. She'll give you a better understanding of common modifiers that ASCs use and how to properly apply them for compliance and reimbursement. BONUS: You'll also walk away with various decision trees to help guide you through the maze of modifiers.

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

  • Is modifier 59 a friend or a foe? See why it's high on the OIG hit list -- and how to avoid common errors.
  • No more confusion over modifiers 52 vs. 53 and 73 vs. 74. Plus, remember these steps when submitting claims to Medicare.
  • What to do when you must choose between modifier 50 and LT/RT.
  • Changes to modifier-exempt CPT codes: A laundry list of codes are now subject to multiple procedure fee reductions.
  • HCPCS level II modifiers: Find out when to use E1-E4, plus the F and T series.
  • Documentation elements you must have to support discontinued service modifiers ... and the V-codes that'll help you out.
