Product Description

Catch up on the Latest Medicare Updates to Maximize Reimbursements for Your Facility


The calendar's last quarter gets the entire healthcare industry in a frenzy, thanks to the plethora of updates happening in this period, which includes the Medicare updates as well. Do you know what impact the final rules for the Physician Fee Schedule (PFS), IPPS, and OPPS (Outpatient Prospective Payment System) will have on your practice? Or whether there are other payment reductions like the Multiple Procedure Payment structure taking effect in 2019?

Get the answers to all these questions (and more) in this must-attend session by medical coding and billing expert Jill M. Young. Get up to speed with CMS’s final PFS rule on a single payment system for level 2-5 office patients, and learn what other new codes can help your practice to recoup some of your lost money. Among other Medicare updates, Jill will also walk you through the new telehealth services and codes that are being added for 2019.

Attending this session will help you prepare better for 2019 office practice changes in E&M coding and reimbursement. You will become aware of the location of final rule documentation for PFS, IPPS, and OPPS. You will discover what codes (E&M or new HCPCS) podiatrists should use in 2019 for office services, and what other Medicare changes may impact your practice in 2019. The session highlights below will give you a fair idea of what all this session will encapsulate.
