From the time a service is rendered until payment is received, a number of people, processes, and pieces of documentation are involved. We'll review this spectrum and the five major players involved: Provider, Coder, Biller, Compliance Officer and Payer. Focus will be on all the things that affect the service provided. A review of the entire revenue cycle including documentation requirements, coding guidelines, payer contracts and policies, appropriate payment posting, and denial research will make this a very informative and educational session.
