Lutherville, MD (PRWEB) October 20, 2011
Healthcare auditing, coding and compliance professionals will be able to participate in a free online webinar on Wednesday, October 26, at 1 p.m. EST, presented by AppealMasters. Appeals expert Denise Wilson will present Case Studies involving national coverage determinations (NCD’s), local coverage determinations (LCD's) and hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) services, plus examine new issues including Pacemakers and MRI’s.
These denials in Region A are due to changes with NCD's, LCD's & HBO services. Participants will also learn how providers in Region D responded to issues revolving around the appearance of a new recovery audit contractor (RAC) audit type.
