Learn more about this event

In the ever changing billing environment that the COVID-19 Crisis has brought about, staying up to date on every service that your practice can provide to its patients in caring for them and making sure to keep your revenue stream consistent is a job for the well informed. The changes from the April 30th IFC are in addition to the ones from the March 30th IFC. Combined there is a wealth of Knowledge to be learned, implemented and billed for. Make sure your practice is capturing all the dollars it is due.

As we start to clear some of the early confusion over the billing of telemedicine office visit services (99201-99215) regarding place of service and modifiers now we have new elements to work through. Changes to direct supervision of auxiliary staff and your Non-physician practitioners (NP, PA, APN) have occurred. Now we have additional waivers applied in both the content of the service (i.e new patients can have a previously restricted service) or the duration (RPM now has consideration for less than 16 days) or who can perform (PTA and OTA’s have had changes to their allowable work).

Attendees will be able to discern which codes are the correct payable codes for services your office is providing, what documentation is needed and then will be able to bill those services correctly for timely reimbursement.

Some of the areas addressed in CMS #5531:
Supervision of Diagnostic Tests by PA, NP and CNS
Home Health – plan of care and certification by PA, NP and CNS
Primary Care Exception for Residents
- Levels of service
