Teleconference - 07/11/18 The Physician’s Certification – What you need to know before writing one!

The training is intended for our J5/J8 Part A/B providers billing on a UB-04/CMS-1500 or electronic equivalent.

Do write Physician Certification Statements (PCS) or certify Medicare services? Are you aware that Medicare beneficiaries have confusion when you certify a service that Medicare doesn’t cover? Did you know that you could be causing other providers to not be paid?

Medicare is a physician driven program; therefore, the physician’s certification of a service is an opportunity to tell Medicare why a medical professional feels a service is medically necessary. On the flip side, if a physician certifies a service that is not medically necessary, this can cause patient confusion, tension between patients and providers, and higher patient out-of-pocket expenses when Medicare doesn’t cover the service. The training will cover:
• Rules and regulations for various types of certifications
• Confusion over the statements
• Common errors Medicare is seeing

Registration will close 07/07/18.
