Seminar - 10/18/17 Don't Get Wrapped Up in Overlapping Claims (Part A)

Seminar - 10/18/17 Don't Get Wrapped Up in Overlapping Claims (Part A)

This seminar is intended for our J5 Part A providers billing on a UB-04 or its electronic equivalent.

Overlapping claims continue to be a top claim rejection for providers. Medicare often receives multiple claims for the same beneficiary with the same or similar dates of service. An overlap occurs when the date of service or billing period of one claim seems to conflict with the date on another claim, indicating that one of the claims may be incorrect. Often, overlapping claims can be prevented by knowing how to properly submit claims in certain situations.

During this full day seminar, WPS GHA will go over the most common reasons for overlapping claims and steps providers can take in an overlapping claim situation. Some of the topics to be covered include:

  • Billing during a leave of absence (LOA)/interrupted stay
  • What “hospital bundling” includes
  • How to determine the proper patient status to use on your claim
  • Main cause of SNF overlaps (aside from Consolidated Billing)
  • 3/1 day payment window
  • End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) Consolidated Billing
  • Home Health Consolidated Billing
  • What Place of Service (POS) Part B providers should use
  • Steps you can take to resolve overlapping claim issues with another provider

Please Note:

  • Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) Consolidated Billing is the number one cause of overlapping claim issues. WPS GHA will be hosting a full day seminar devoted to just this topic the following day. We encourage you to register for both days; however, it is not a requirement.
  • This seminar is intended for those who bill claims on a UB-04.  Please do not also register for the Don't Get Wrapped Up in Overlapping Claims (Part B) seminar being held the same day.  By registering for the (Part A) seminar, you are automatically registered for the (Part B) seminar.

Registration will close 10/11/17 or when capacity of 24 is met.

Time of Event:
: 8:00 - 8:30 AM

In an effort to adopt consistent industry trends, beginning in 2017, WPS GHA will offer seminar materials only in an electronic format.  Seminar registrants are responsible for printing and bringing their own handouts.  To access, choose the Additional References tab in the Learning Center course.
