Product Description

'Billing Hassle on Board': When pregnant patients switch physician groups.

It's great when your practice welcomes a new patient -- but not so great for the coders if the patient is in the middle of a pregnancy. Coders know all too well that when a patient doesn't follow the same physician or group for the 9-month global pregnancy packages, all sorts of coding confusion can amass. The same is true if an existing patient experiences a miscarriage, abortion, or other fetal demise.

But you can prepare yourself to code and collect for interrupted pregnancies by joining expert speaker Jan Rasmussen, CPC, ACS-GI, ACS-OB, during this 1-hour teleconference. She'll cover all the confusing payer issues that surface, clear up critical terminology issues, as well as uncover key coding milestones in pregnancy dating.

Here’s a sampling of what you’ll learn:

  • Take the fear out of the term "abortion." Learn terminology associated with interrupted pregnancies due to complications.
  • Do you know your trimesters? Get specific coding guidelines based on the extent of the pregnancy.
  • The "magic date" -- and coding determiner -- for many pregnancy services.
  • Surgical vs. non-surgical treatment ... and how it translates to your coding.
  • The top 3 payer issues interrupted pregnancies bring to town.
  • Specific components in antepartum, intrapartum and postpartum services you must report for optimum reimbursement.
  • You may need to make an appeal: Use these tools to help.
