You may think you are charging Medicare everything you are entitled to, but you are probably NOT. This means you are doing the work, and not getting paid. This will only get worse if you fail to implement Medicare’s 2019 Physician Fee Schedule (PFS) changes that already went into effect.
Updating your fee schedule is the ONLY way you can get paid every penny of what you deserve from Medicare. The 2019 update includes drastic revisions that will directly impact how and what you are paid for the Medicare services you provide. Not making these changes means you could wind up leaving thousands of uncollected dollars on the table.
Mastering the numerous 2019 PFS revisions on your own can be overwhelming, and leave you open to costly mistakes. But you don’t have to do it alone, coding expert and educator, Kim Garner Huey, MJ, CHC, CPC, CCS-P, PCS, CPCO, COC, can help. During her online training session, Kim will walk you through how to identify the 2019 PFS changes that will most impact your practice.
