Product Description

Understand in Details about Coding and Billing Guidelines for Medicare (Eye-care)

A lot of clinics are unaware of uncertainty that crops up with Medical guidelines. Actually, Medicare carriers differ with States and what one carrier can think acceptable may be denied by the other. Even experienced coders and billers, who have worked in the same city and state for most of the career, will be unaware of the subtle but significant variance from state to state and carrier to carrier. Join expert speaker Jeffrey Restuccio who will target this conference to coders, billers, managers and providers. Get proven tips and strategies to eliminate denials due to Medicare rules and guidelines. Most clinics waste time and money calling carriers for every denial. You will learn effective means for managing multiple Medicare rules.

The presentation is going to cover basic, intermediate and advanced errors often made by even experienced coders and billers. You will understand how to increase efficiency and effectiveness of staff and providers and know how to save time and money. This conference will also help you reduce confusion and lost revenues due to improperly submitted claims. The various topics to be discussed include medical necessity, auditing tips, modifiers, incorrectly coded services, and information not in the CPT manual, ICD-9 linking, and incident-to services. Jeff will illustrate, using specific examples, how simple mistakes and errors can have a big impact. His experience as a trainer, auditor and coder will provide an informative and unique approach to eliminating errors. You will get to learn more about organizational issues, coding fundamentals, the interaction of coding and billing, and specific coding examples.
