Pre-Conference / Post-Conferences

Medicare Boot Camp®—Utilization Review Version

Medicare Boot Camp®—Denials and Appeals Version

Pre-Conference: October 4-5, 2020
8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Medicare Boot Camp®—Utilization Review Version

An intensive two-day course focusing on the Medicare regulatory requirements for patient status and the role of the utilization review (UR) committee.

Managing patient status plays a critical role in proper compliance, correct reimbursement, and stabilizing inpatient payments for the hospital. In 2020, CMS made significant changes to the inpatient-only list and continues to change its strategies for auditing patient status. Don’t become a target or leave money on the table—ensure the UR committee is ready to implement and leverage the regulatory requirements.

Medicare Boot Camp®—Utilization Review Version also answers all your questions about navigating the CMS website and finding Medicare requirements. You will be able to find answers to your questions long after the Boot Camp is over.

You will leave this program knowing:

  • How to apply the 2-midnight benchmark and 2-midnight presumptions
  • Implement changes to the inpatient-only list for 2020
  • The differences between post-discharge versus concurrent patient status reviews
  • When self-denial is appropriate to take advantage of Part B payment for an inpatient case
  • How NCDs, LCDs, and coverage with evidence development (CED) affect coverage of cases that meet the 2-midnight benchmark
  • The observation coverage rules and how they interact with the 2-midnight benchmark
  • When ABNs and HINNs should be used for stays that don’t meet medical necessity requirements

Who should attend?

  • Utilization review coordinators
  • Utilization management managers and directors
  • Utilization review committee members
  • UR physician advisors
  • Case managers
  • Care coordinators
  • Revenue cycle staff
  • Nurse managers
  • Compliance officers and auditors

Post-Conference: October 8-9, 2020
8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Medicare Boot Camp®—Provider-Based Departments Version

Reimbursement for provider-based departments (PBD) and clinics has been declining, with off-campus payment changes and significant encounter-based packaging initiatives by CMS. Hospitals need to understand both the outpatient prospective payment system as well as the new PBD site-specific physician fee schedule payment to effectively assess the impact of these initiatives on PBDs and patients. With more hospitals moving services off-campus due to the value of hospital space or for patient convenience, reimbursement and compliance now become even more complex.

The Medicare Boot Camp—Provider-Based Departments Version provides education on attestations, on- and off-campus determinations, enrollment, billing, and reimbursement. This Boot Camp will provide brand new insight for understanding hospital outpatient department billing and reimbursement in an ever-changing regulatory landscape.

This boot camp will break down billing, coding, compliance, coverage, qualification, and other issues. It will help attendees gauge the financial impact of changes to off-campus PBDs, understand the effects of the recent increased packaging of services for all PBDs, and know how to handle other recent changes, such as modifiers -PO and -PN and modifier JG.

You will leave this program knowing how to:

  • Ensure PBDs meet regulatory requirements
  • Properly apply Modifiers -PO, -PN, -25, and -JG
  • Apply supervision requirements to ensure compliant, covered hospital outpatient services
  • Find and apply National and Local Coverage Determinations 
  • Research Medicare coverage, coding, and billing issues 
  • Accurately calculate reimbursement for on- and off-campus PBDs under both the OPPS and PBD site-specific MPFS rate
  • Determine when ancillary services such as drugs and testing are paid separately

Who should attend?

  • Compliance directors, managers, and staff 
  • Finance staff 
  • Billers 
  • Auditors 
  • CFOs, finance directors 
  • Revenue cycle directors and professionals 
  • Revenue integrity professionals 
  • HIM directors and managers 
  • Coders 
  • Physician practice administrators
