This webinar by expert speaker Lori-Lynne A. Webb, will provide in-depth strategies and the most up to date concepts for OB physician offices to put in place for correct OB delivery coding and billing for uncommon and difficult scenarios in obstetric practices. This webinar will educate physicians and staff regarding the correct documentation for clear and concise correct billing. This is extremely important especially when it comes to uncommon scenarios and out of the ordinary antepartum/intrapartum and postpartum care that occur within a “global” ob timeframe.

Lori-Lynne will provide you with immediate and current know-how, and time-saving tips, documentation “macros” and proven strategies to implement better documentation with the medical and patient care records.

This webinar is ideal for physicians, mid-level providers such as Midwives, Clinical Nurse specialists, Physician Assistants, and support clinical staff (such as your RN’s and MA’s. Coders, Billers and Office Managers stand to gain the most, as these strategies and coding concepts for correct billing make this a vital learning event for all coders (beginners, intermediate and experienced) that have come up against unusual circumstances, and are uncertain how to bill them. This session will also bring new ideas and education to coding in the OB area and help coders feel more comfortable coding and billing those "odd things" that happen in OB.
