Improve Your Bottom Line

Friday, May 13th |The Hyatt Centric Magnificent Mile

Whether you're planning to stay in private practice or you are considering being acquired, merged, or employed - a better bottom line pays off.

This workshop is filled with assessments you can use to see how well the business office or your billing service is doing. We include assessments you can use when hiring billing managers and coders.

Join us for three fast-paced hours with information you can put into place that can improve your bottom line in 90 days.

Topics Covered
  • Key Financial Performance Indicators
  • Best Billing Practices Assessments
  • Hiring Competent Billing Managers and Coders
  • Crafting Financial Policies That Produce Results and Don't Put Patients Off
  • Optimizing Technology in Your Business Office
  • Why Financing Works for Patients with High Deductibles
  • Exactly How to Ask for Prepayment for Services and Surgery
  • Turning Accounts Over to Collections: Here's Your Guide

We start at 9 AM sharp. One break. Finish at Noon.

Power Coding in the Office

Friday, May 13th |The Hyatt Centric Magnificent Mile

1:00 pm - 5:00 pm Central

Learn about these hot topics for reporting office services:  Applying E/M guideline change in the office; how did the AMA’s March 2021 Technical Corrections impact medical decision making credit in orthopaedics?  Learn how you can defend against E/M denials by using modifiers 24, 57, and 25 correctly.  CMS made significant changes to its non-physician provider (NPP) billing rules in 2022.  Join us to discuss the intricacies of incident to, direct, and split/shared billing for Medicare claims, with a focus on applying the new CMS criteria. 

Learning Objectives: 

  • Update your knowledge of the CPT 2021 E/M requirements and how they compare to original E/M guidelines
  • Apply E/M modifiers accurately
  • Describe when it is appropriate to report an E/M service in addition to a joint injection
  • Differentiate incident-to and split/shared reporting for NPPs – and see how those concepts are impacted by 2022 CMS changes
