Product Description

Learn What Payers Expect You to Do—and Not to Do—When Filing Claims

Staying on top of annual changes to ICD-10, CPT and HCPCS code definitions—as well as payer and documentation requirements—is not just exhausting; it’s time consuming. But so is making (even minor) mistakes, which can lead to hours spent correcting claims and filing appeals.

Instead, spend a single hour with coding and billing consultant Stephanie Thomas to get a rundown of all the information you need to make 2019 a maximum-timely-reimbursement kind of year.

Ensure you can prove medical necessity, choose the most specific code possible (hint: it could be a new or revised one), follow payers’ pre-authorization rules, and protect your clinic from audits. Plus, find out what to expect from the 2019 OIG Work Plan and CMS’s proposed changes to Evaluation and Management (E/M) rules.

Thomas will present specific examples of what not to do so you don’t waste your time guessing at compliance. She’ll also arm you with examples of coding and payer updates headed your way—and point out the specific modifiers that require careful consideration before use.

After attending, you’ll be able to explain to your team how changes to the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) will affect your practice—and the kind of reimbursement your facility can expect in 2019. Thomas will also provide a list of handy resources to refer to throughout the year when you need help.
