Prevent payment denials and reduce compliance risk with the correct use of modifiers.
Durham, NC (PRWEB) August 17, 2018
AudioEducator, a division of audio conference and corporate education leader ProEdTech, will host a 180-minute, two-session Virtual Boot Camp, titled “CMS Modifiers: Coding, Billing, and Compliance Regulations” with industry veteran Elin Baklid-Kunz on Thursday, August 23, 2018 at 1:00 PM ET.
Correctly applying modifiers isn’t always as easy as it seems. Medical coding modifiers can be confusing – and they keep changing every year. Providers often use modifiers inappropriately, leading to claim denials, wasted follow-up time, and even government investigations.
In this Virtual Boot Camp, medical coding compliance expert Elin Baklid-Kunz will provide insights on how to prevent reduced payments and denials, and combat government scrutiny. Attendees will learn about the different types of medical coding modifiers, the differences between CMS and other payers, the common mistakes to avoid, and the best practices to follow. Baklid-Kunz will also help attendees to understand (with examples) what to look for when auditing – and offer tips on how to be in compliance and ensure correct payment (along with the OIG report on modifiers).
After attending this Virtual Boot Camp, attendees will gain confidence in their ability to correctly recognize, distinguish and use medical coding modifiers, and include them in their practice audit plan.
