Product Description

Obstetric Global Package: The Ins And Outs Of Getting Paid.

Billing for routine obstetric care can sometimes be as challenging as coding for complications of pregnancy. For instance, how do you know the first OB visit has been provided? What happens when your payer does not allow global billing? Which additional services are included during the antepartum, delivery, and postpartum period?

Sign up for this enlightening event presented by expert Melanie Witt, RN, CPC, COBGC, MA, who will address the above mentioned and many other issues in this 1 hour session. Knowing about what is included is just as important as what is not. With this session you will avoid service denials due to inappropriate billing of included services.

Take a look at what's covered:

  • Think you know when the OB records starts? Learn what simple evaluation may make your separate billing no longer possible.
  • Routine OB care does include some testing? Find out the ones you always have to include and why.
  • The physician decides to induce labor. Is this included or excluded? Learn what to look for in order to bill correctly and avoid unnecessary denials.
  • Even though global ob care is billed, providers need to level their visits to either get resource credit for care, or to be prepared in case the visit can later be billed to the payer for a complication.  Find out what elements reasonably apply to each level of service for the OB patient.
  • Do you know all of the coding possibilities for routine global care?  Your payer may not follow CPT guidelines so be prepared with these tips for different situations.

Who should attend? Providers, coders, billers, practice managers
