Medicine is now widely viewed as a business, and there is a focus on increasing revenue and maintaining a profit margin. As physician reimbursements fall, many physicians have looked to other areas to increase their revenue. Ancillary studies during this time have seen a surge in their performance and billings to compensate for falling fees. All urology offices or departments should now consider providing certain ancillary services to help manage patients and hopefully to raise revenue.
In this audio-conference, expert speaker Michael A. Ferragamo, Jr., MD, FACS, will review several ancillary procedures and studies particular to urology and their proper coding and billing to insure correct reimbursements. Didactic teaching and clinical examples will be presented throughout the session to enhance understanding.
Who Should Attend?
Urologists, pediatric urologists as well as urogynecologists should attend. RNs, coders, billers, and all staff involved in the performance, coding and billing, authorizing, and the posting of these services should also attend.
