1-Hour Session

CMS made significant changes to its non-physician provider (NPP) billing rules in 2022. Dive into the intricacies of incident to, direct, and split/shared billing for Medicare claims, with a focus on applying the new CMS criteria.  

This 1-hour virtual course analyzes the NPP billing options for Medicare, with a detailed look at changes effective in 2022 that apply in orthopaedic practices. 

In this session you will:

  • Refresh your understanding of the definitions and criteria for incident to, direct, and split/shared billing. 
  • Compare CMS’s previous rules for split/shared reporting with what’s new in 2022.
  • Learn about a new modifier CMS requires for split/shared services.
  • Assess orthopaedic scenarios to practice applying these essential billing concepts.
