Webinar: Documenting Medical Necessity for Outpatient Services

To avoid denials, much is required to support the code assignments for outpatient services.  Medical Necessity has been identified by CMS and the OIG as the ‘Overarching Criterion’ for Medicare Payment.  Non-Medicare Payors have expanded their concurrent and retrospective review of documentation to support ‘medical necessity’ for reimbursement.  National Coverage Determinations (NCD), Local Coverage Determinations, (LCD), Medically Unlikely Edits, (MUE), and National Correct Coding Initiative (NCCI) edits all contribute to this complex web of rules.  Understanding all the documentation elements required to support outpatient medical necessity can be very challenging.

Webinar: Innovative Changes to the Reimbursement System

This discussion will assist your organization in understanding innovative reimbursement mechanisms that are developing as a result of healthcare reform.  Many new reimbursement structures are being developed, implemented and evaluated as health care moves from payment based upon volume, to payment based upon value.  We will discuss these structures, how they are working, how they can be improved and the keys to making them work for your organization.  National trends in payor/provider relationships will also be discussed as well as what to expect for the near future.
