Locum Tenuns - What to Do When Your Provider Is Gone Webinar

Learn more about this event

If your physician needs a break because of CoVID-19, a family vacation or to take time off for a new addition to the family, Locum Tenens is the concept of substituting for your physician with another physician. As is often the case, first we look to Medicare for their rules on the topic of Locum Tenens. Medicare made major changes to the Locum Tenens section of the Manual in the last couple of years. Understanding those changes and the complex billing and documentation requirements for Medicare patients is a start. Researching and implementing the policies of other insurance carriers is the next step in making sure your office has compliant documentation in patient’s charts as well as other documentation carriers may require. Locum Tenens is not as simple as putting a modifier on a claim when another physician sees patients in your office. Compliant documentation, tracking and knowing who can perform these “substitute provider” services is an important part of the process and will be explained during this webinar.
