    Webinar On Healthcare Coding, Billing and Reimbursement: An Overview

    Overview: Many people work with various aspects of healthcare coding and billing but may not understand how providers generate their claim data, how they report the data to payors, and how payors use that information to reimburse providers. This webinar provides a high-level overview of all major aspects of healthcare coding, billing, and reimbursement. We discuss key data elements of the two major claim forms (CMS-1500 and UB04) and how that information tells the story of the patient’s encounter with the provider. We review the major coding systems including CPT, HCPCS, ICD-9, ICD-10, DRG, and APC, and examine how codes in each system are assigned and the purpose of each system. We review the typical process flow for how a provider submits a claim and gets reimbursed. We discuss the fundamentals of physician and hospital reimbursement, including a brief conversation of relative value units (RVUs) are and how they are used to reimburse providers.

    How to Best Manage the Emotional Rollercoaster of Asperger Syndrome-High Functioning Autism

    Many professionals are frequently frustrated when presented with a client who has social deficits associated with Asperger Syndrome/High Functioning Autism.

Techniques that have been successfully used for years with clients who struggle with similar issues but do not have the Asperger Syndrome/High Functioning Autism are often ineffective when dealing with this population and leave both the client and professional frustrated.

    National Practitioner Data Bank Expanded Reporting Parameters

    Hospitals must file a National Practitioner Data Bank report on any physician's surrender of privileges if an investigation is underway. This has always been a Data Bank reporting requirement, intended to discourage plea bargains which allowed physicians to avoid being reported if they agreed to waive hearing rights. Under the new Guidebook, expanded descriptions of "investigation" and "surrender" stretch what is to be considered a reportable surrender of privileges. OPPE and FPPE and other peer review can be affected, as are physicians ability to make practice decisions without inadvertently tripping Data Bank reporting triggers.

    How you are Violating HIPAA Every Day

    Covered entities and business associates have very specific requirements under the HIPAA Privacy Rule, HIPAA Security Rule and Breach Notification Rule. Enforced by the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) HIPAA appears to be constantly changing, not based on new regulations, but guidance and newsletters from the OCR, Office of the Inspector General, Office of National Coordinator and CMS. In addition, OCR adopts many of the publications from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Without a clear understanding of how to apply the standards in your office, you will most likely be in violation of some aspect of HIPAA every day. Small matters such as not posting your Notice of Privacy Practices (NPP) in your waiting room or not listing electronic exchanges on your Notice.
