Product Description

Your facet injection claims may be flying red flags to auditors -- and you may not even know it.

The OIG has its eye on facet injections and will be stepping up its reviews in this arena, according to the agency's recent publication. But don’t fear – you can protect your practice with the right billing and documentation know-how. Let coding and billing expert Debbie Farmer, CPC, ACS-AN, show you the ropes in this 60-minute audio and video learning. She'll give you the tools you need to prevent your facet injection claims from getting reviewed; plus, she'll offer valuable tips on providing good documentation should the OIG come calling.

Topics covered:

  • Bulletproof your documentation – learn what’s required to support facet injections in the OIG's eyes.
  • Does your coding staff know how to report the separate levels billed? Learn an easy way to get it right every time.
  • Injections vs. destruction codes. Not knowing the difference will cost you.
  • Don’t suffer rejected payments – learn what the carriers are looking for to approve your claims.
  • Conduct your own audit and find out what to do when you’ve been over- or underpaid.
