Hospice & Palliative care visit billers????


Cary, NC
Best answers
I work for a group that cares for hospice patients and also does palliative care consults in N.C. I am interested in finding someone out there who could help me learn more about it. I have over 8 years in physician office billing, but I know that hospice & palliative care consult billing is, as my CPC instructor put it "a whole different area". I have worked in an Administrative Assistant position with this group for 5 years and was recently promoted to Department Coordinator after receiving my CPC certification and will be doing more in the way of auditing and minor practice management as we are a growing group. I have always loved learing more about coding/billing and would like to learn more about the fine points of billing in these areas.

Any help would be appreciated!
