Education for billing office and coding staff is offered each summer with topics chosen based on input from MT CAHs.
Registration is now open for two coding webinars sponsored and supported by the MT Medicare Rural Hospital Flexibility (Flex) grant which assists Montana’s Critical Access Hospitals. Eide Bailly will be presenting on two timely coding topics for MT CAHs. Continuing education credits have been submitted to AAPC for approval.
These webinars are free to MT Critical Access Hospital staff. If you work for a larger hospital that provides billing and coding for MT CAHs, register as a MT CAH.
With increased movement to value based reimbursement across the market, the ability to accurately report patients’ complex needs to account for their resource and cost utilization is becoming increasingly important. Multiple Medicare programs utilize Hierarchical Condition Category coding (HCC) as a means of communication of a patient’s diagnosis history, current health status, and projected resource utilization. A lack of understanding of HCC and how their resulting Risk Adjusted Factor (RAF) scores are used to provide reimbursement to organizations, leaves you at risk of causing an unintentional negative impact to your organization’s financial health.
In this session, we will address the following objectives:
RHONDA QUAST, DIRECTOR OF REVENUE CYCLE, EIDE BAILLY : Rhonda has more than 21 years of health care industry experience, including 13 years of experience as a Licensed Practical Nurse with clinical and claims review experience. She has eight years of experience in Revenue Cycle leadership, including patient access related to scheduling, registration, and prior authorization. Rhonda has experience in ACO and Electronic Health Record implementations and Revenue Cycle operations related to population health and value based reimbursement models.
Regulations abound throughout every health care setting. Observation is one of the more complex services to accurately assure compliance with documentation, coding, and billing. The organization may be at risk for reporting errors, or may be leaving money on the table for which they are entitled.
In this session we will address the following objectives:
