    Course Description:

    Insurance Billing Essentials

    Effective Oct 1, ALL providers will be required to use a new set of diagnosis codes.  These codes are MUCH more specific than the old ICD9.  For some codes you will be required to report whether this is the initial encounter for this condition as well as more specificity in general.  You’ll understand just how this works and you’ll get documentation of the typical diagnosis codes you see in your practices.

    In this course you will learn:

    • How to understand the ICD-10 Codes which take effect Oct 1, 2015
    • How to use the new CMS form to your advantage
    • Documentation Requirements – Give Insurance Carriers What they want
    • New VA requirements and what you need to do to treat Federal WC patients
    • Insurance Carrier updates – what’s the latest with the major carriers

    You’ll leave class understanding the whys and hows of the new codes along with “cheat sheets” of the new ICD10 codes that are considered medically necessary for acupuncturists.

    Along with the new codes is a new claim form.  You’ll learn what is absolutely necessary to include on the form, what is optional, and two letter descriptors to give the carriers more information.

    It’s all about your documentation!

    Cancellation Policy: 

    One month prior to seminar date: Full refund minus $25 cancellation fee.

    One month to one week prior: 60% of tuition will be refunded.
