Teleconference - 03/06/18 New to Medicare – Documentation

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

Incomplete or illegible records can result in denial of payment for services billed to Medicare. In order for a claim for Medicare benefits to be valid, there must be sufficient documentation in the medical record to verify the services performed were "reasonable and necessary" and required the level of care billed. When documentation is incomplete or insufficient, there is no justification for the services or level of care billed. During this educational session, we will discuss the Medicare requirements for documentation, as well as options for submitting documentation to Medicare, if the claim is selected for medical review. 

The New to Medicare series is designed for those working with Medicare for less than 1 year or with questions on the basics of the Medicare program. This teleconference will address information needed by anyone who is beginning to learn the Medicare program. 

Registration will close 03/02/18.
