“Medicare Part B billing for wound care supplies is complex,” according to Amanda Smithey, presenter of the webinar and Regional Director of Long Term Care Solutions at WoundRounds. “The facility’s billing department needs accurate wound documentation plus knowledge of eligible wounds and products,” adds Smithey. The webinar reviews specific wounds and reimbursable wound care products based on Medicare guidelines. Additionally Smithey will share case studies and practical tips to optimize wound care billing.
“Improving wound care is the core mission of WoundRounds, so we are pleased to offer this free valuable education and help facilities learn more about wound care and eligible reimbursement,” says Smithey. Besides Part B billing best practices, the webinar will end with a demonstration of automated documentation, a feature of the WoundRounds system that makes it easier for facilities to get paid promptly and appropriately, increasing reimbursement.
