    I would like a speaker to talk about Medicare Risk Adjustment. This is becoming a huge topic in the area, but I have not seen anyone speak about it yet . I know that they had a speaker in Orlando talk about it, and I was told it was great. I would like to see it here.

    how do you play this? Is there a template? I don't really understand the whole bingo thing correlating with coding? Do you ask coding questions or something. IF you could reply , that would be wonderful

    Default Medicare Risk Adjustment
    Until you can find someone to speak on the subjecy of Medicare Risk Adjustment in your area, you may want to take a look at the following CMS website:

    Default Coding Bingo
    yes, we created our own bingo cards:
    c - cpt, o - med terms, d - diagnoisis, etc......you could lable it any way you want.

    Then we came up with questions for each category. We came up with a lot of questions for each category.

    Then on the bingo cards; we created on word I think. We typed in the answers to the questions.

    So we pull a question (like pulling a bingo number) and read it: What is the modifier for assistant surgery?

    Then the players would mark the correct modifier if it is on their card.

    Some questions were multiple choice. We also use it as a learning tool and give hints. We play it at our end of year party where family members are also invited so we have had non coders play - and win - we always help one another. We make it fun and we all learn in the process.

    We have played this 3 years in a row and this is the first year that I need to print out more bingo cards - thats how many questions we had.

    Hope this helps.
