Locum tenens physicians play a crucial role in the U.S. healthcare system, and hospitals use them frequently in different scenarios to temporarily fill in for someone else. But many hospitals are missing out on revenue due to noncompliances—such as those related to billing—especially after Medicare made changes to the locum tenens billing concepts.
Join healthcare compliance expert Jill Young in this audio conference to master the nuances of the locum tenens billing concepts, and learn how they may affect you in different situations. Young will decode the language and policy of Medicare regarding locums, and share tips on how to research and what to have as a backup policy if you can’t find information. She will explain who can be a locums provider, show you how to bill properly using the right documentation, and apprise you of key factors such as length of time restrictions and other seemingly small (but important) policy areas.
