Telemedicine: Coding, Billing and Compliance for 2019

Live Webinar | Duane C. Abbey | From: Apr 11, 2019 - To: May 02, 2019
Description

Understand the Updated Coding, Billing & Reimbursement Process Under the Medicare Program

Much of the guidance for telemedicine or telehealth services comes from the Medicare program—where changes occur almost every year. The recently enacted 21st Century Cures Act directs CMS to expand telemedicine services. Remote robotic surgery is on the horizon, and Medicare Advantage programs are being given more latitude in what they can include relative to telemedicine. Hospitals, clinics and physicians need to comply with the updated rules, policies, and procedures. But this can be quite challenging, because the technology continues to outstrip payment and compliance issues. 

Understand the updated coding, billing, and reimbursement process for telemedicine services in this audio conference by industry expert Duane Abbey. Abbey will explain the general concept of telemedicine and how it works. He will bring you up to speed with the special telemedicine terminology, the current Medicare rules and regulations, and the special requirements for physicians and practitioners. He will walk you through the coding, billing and reimbursement process for telemedicine services under the Medicare program; explain the clinical and billing privileges surrounding telemedicine; and review the credentialing changes for physicians providing telehealth services. He will explain what hospitals, CAHs and clinics need to do to bill for telemedicine services, and bring you up to speed with what’s so special about rural health clinics (RHCs), key compliance issues, how third-party payers view telemedicine and telehealth, and the new latitude that Medicare Advantage programs have in the telemedicine area. He will also explain how the 21st Century Cures Act impacts telemedicine and telehealth, and review future changes for telemedicine, particularly with Medicare.

After attending this session, you will be better placed to comply with the updated coding and billing requirements for telemedicine services, particularly under the Medicare program.
