Understanding the codes that allow bilateral modifiers, multiple surgeons and multiple procedure code reductions can be tricky. The Medicare fee schedule database includes all that valuable information and more.
Join this session by expert speaker Lori-Lynne A. Webb, who will discuss how to utilize the information in the fee schedule to reduce claims denials and receive appropriate reimbursement. Lori will explain how to navigate the Medicare fee schedule database and how each of the columns relates to coding and reimbursement. The session will also discuss the relative value formulas in the clinic vs. outpatient setting, which affect overall physician reimbursement and have appeared on the OIG list of common errors for several years.
