Locum Tenens is Latin for “one holding a place,” but in your healthcare facility it really means someone who is fulfilling the duties of another. Locums provide a ready means to fill positions that are temporarily empty—perhaps because of sickness or leave. But the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) has changed its verbiage when it comes to locums—now it’s defined as “fee for time compensation arrangements.” Are you prepared to properly bill for this small but important role?
Join coding expert Jill Young in this informative session as she teaches you everything you need to know about locum tenens—and who can bill as one.
After attending this webinar, you will know: how to use the Q6 modifier, who accepts it, whose definition of a locum tenens is right, how long you can bill for locums, who can be one, and what documentation you need to keep. Locums aren’t going away—stay current and be confident you are billing correctly so you get paid what you deserve.
Here is a taste of what you will uncover in this informative session:
