Product Description

Best Approach to Billing the OB Global Package and Identifying Additional Reimbursement Areas.

Documentation of OB services is crucial to enhancing reimbursement for complicated OB cases as well as interrupted pregnancies.

But accurately identifying what’s included in the OB global package isn’t always clear cut. Getting your OB global billing right means you’ll need to understand how to report routine services, know which antepartum services are included and which are separately billable, and be prepared to handle billing for interrupted pregnancies and complications that may arise.

During the session, Jan Rasmussen will look at the best approach to billing the OB global package and identifying areas where additional reimbursement may be available. You will also get tips for billing and documenting complications during the OB global period.

Additionally, you will learn how to identify lost revenue and billing opportunities for interrupted pregnancies when the patient changes insurance or providers, or experiences spontaneous or missed abortions.

Session Highlights:

  • Identify routine services included in the OB global package
  • Tips on capturing separately billable antepartum care
  • Identify appropriate inpatient coding for pregnancy related encounters
  • Documentation suggestions for billing separate visits for interrupted pregnancies or office complications during pregnancy
  • Diagnosis coding to support separate billing for visits and diagnostic studies during the global period
