Overview: Incident-to coding for your non-physician practitioners (NPPs) services in conjunction with a supervising physician continues to generate confusion- and 2018 will be no exception. So, it's no surprise that these claims generate higher than average denials, and lead to hefty penalties for physician practices ranging from $163K to $1.5 million - but they don't have to.

Obviously, being paid 100% vs. 85% for your NPPs services is the goal. However, correctly maneuvering through complex incident-to guidelines so you can avoid audits and fines is anything but easy. That's where expert coder, Rhonda Granja, B.S., CMC, CMOM, CMA, CPC, comes in. Rhonda has put together a 60-minute training session to help you cut through the confusion of these difficult coding situations.

Even if you don't see Medicare patients, you should still take note. Private carriers usually end up following suit with CMS at some point.

Why should you Attend: Here are just some of the practical, step-by-step NPP coding tactics you'll receive by completing this concise, plain-English session:

Master incident-to billing and boost your NPPs reimbursement by up to 15%
Pin down what "direct supervision" REALLY means
Get clarification on NPP E/M services (99211)
Boost your pay-up by using 2015 critical care management codes for your NPP services
Comply with your State's guidelines and reduce denials and repayments more accurately
Maximize your reimbursement with NPPs role in transitional care management
And so much more

By completing this NPP training session, you'll receive the practical tools you need to get paid as much as ethically possible for your NPP services (without crossing any lines), and know what changes are necessary to get your NPP documentation into compliance. It also doesn't matter what type of NPP your practice is utilizing either. (i.e. PA, NP, CRNA, CNM, CNS, etc.).

The only way you will receive accurate, compliant, optimal payments is to have a firm understanding of these complex rules & guidelines. If you expect to file even one NPP services claim in 2016 you should absolutely order this training session, don't wait, order today.
