But unfortunately, there’s also a lot of auditing being performed on physicians and suppliers due to high volumes of reimbursement errors—mostly on account of lack of necessary documentation. In this orthopedic coding training session, Lynn M Anderanin will not only discuss coding for DME, but will also bring attendees up to speed with documentation requirements, and teach them how to create and compliantly manage a DME program in their office.
