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 by the January 1st effective date.
Updating your fee schedule is the ONLY way you can get paid every penny of what you deserve from Medicare. The 2019 update will include 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 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. After taking advantage of this training, you’ll fully understand what you need to do before the January 1, 2019 effective date to improve your compliance and make sure you get paid for ALL the services you provide.
Here are just a few of the practical, step-by-step tactics you’ll receive by taking advantage of this 60-minute online training:
- Get prepared for massive E/M payment modifications that will change how you are paid
- Uncover new reimbursable codes for patient phone calls and emails (including RHCs and FQHCs)

Who is this for? This training is beneficial for all practices that treat Medicare patients.
So much focus is typically put on new payment opportunities each year, that it’s easy for you to miss new opportunities for billing the services you already perform. You need to successfully incorporate all PFS changes that apply to your practice, not just one aspect of it.
Incorporating the 2019 Physician Fee Schedule changes certainly helps you get paid more accurately, but it also helps you avoid throwing up red flags to Medicare that could get you audited (like undercoding).
You’ll walk away from this training with a firm understanding of how you can make Medicare’s 2019 Physician Fee Schedule changes work for you and your practice before the January 1st deadline (increasing your reimbursement and decreasing your chances of being audited.) Don’t wait, sign up today.
