Pain Management Practices are seeing continued decreases in reimbursement and increase in scrutiny over compliance issues. 2016 changes, challenge of prior authorization requirements, coding changes, OIG scrutiny over POS (place of service), and billing correctly for supplies and services, while providing medical necessity makes pain management billing a real pain for providers.
Join this session by expert speaker Trish Bukauskas to learn how to capture all relevant reimbursement and avoid costly denials by streamlining your claims management process. This session will help you to streamline your billing and help you realize the importance of monitoring your EOBs (Explanation of Benefits) more closely than ever.
Trish will also provide a sample authorization form, fee schedules and tips on how to hold payers “accountable.” You’ll be able to review Medicare and payer’s policies in advance. CPT® coding changes and proper billing of multiple procedures will be discussed along with an overview of spinal anatomy. The session’s focus will be primarily on the changes and upcoming trends in 2016 and future changes due. Medicare is proposing a value based payment system where physicians will get paid on quality and this session will provide guidance on getting practices on the right path towards a quality-based practice.
Who should attend?
Medical coders, medical billers, physician office managers and personnel and pain physicians
