As oncology practices and cancer programs still scramble to update their respective charge masters, fee schedules, and other reimbursement documents to ensure compliance with coding and billing guidelines in 2016, we have designed a session for oncology practices for a quarterly update of the changes that really matters.
Join us for this session with expert speaker Brenda Chidester-Palmer - CPC, CPC-I, CEMC, CASC for an expert review of changes to the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule Database (MPFSD), Local Coverage Determinations (LCD) and National Coverage Determines (NCD) for oncology procedures and drugs. She will also provide a review of third party payer changes and if they follow Medicare’s policies. Brenda will also cover all recent updates and apply them to actual chart notes for correct reimbursement of your procedures and drugs. Additionally, you’ll understand the key documentation needed to support your coding and discuss the changes to the policies with real coding scenarios.
Plus, Brenda will review changes to Medicare’s national and local coverage policies and how this will affect coding and documentation.
This session will cover all the areas that the update has impacted, including:
