In the past year, CMS has targeted practices filing non-physician practitioner (NPP) incident-to claims for audits more aggressively than ever before. Several of the practices ended up paying fines in excess of $150,000 each for improperly billing NPP services.
Don’t let this happen to you….
You can get the practical information you need to stay off CMS’s audit radar without losing NPP reimbursement. Kim Garner Huey, MJ, CHC, CPC, CCS-P, PCS, CPCO presentied a 60-minute online training session that will provide you with the practical tools you need to get paid as much as ethically possible for your NPP services (without crossing any lines), all while improving your compliance and decreasing your chances of being audited.
Here are just a few of the practical, step-by-step strategies you’ll receive by ordering Kim’s 60-minute online training session:
- Master incident-to billing and boost your NPPs reimbursement by up to 15%
- Quickly identify and avoid incident-to errors that will get you audited
- Overcome missing or poorly written incident-to policies
- Accurately bill for your NPPs role in transitional care management
- Pin down NPP independence guidelines for office vs. hospital services and avoid audit red flags
- Uncover hidden reimbursements by accurately billing split-shared services
- Avoid hefty penalties for location violations that might surprise you
- Correctly incorporate scope-of practice-perimeters to stop repayments
- And so much more…
Even if you don’t see Medicare patients, you should still pay serious attention to what CMS is doing. Private carriers usually end up following suit with CMS. And, it doesn’t matter what type of NPP your practice is utilizing (i.e., PA, NP, CRNA, CNM, CNS, etc.). Basically, if you are using NPPs you could be a target, unless you know what to do.
