Medicare provides critical support for advances in medical technology through additional payments under the Inpatient Prospective Payment System (IPPS) and Outpatient Prospective Payment System (OPPS). However, although these therapies are life-changing for patients, it can be complex to ensure new technology is compliantly and accurately billed and coded. Hospitals also struggle to ensure clinical departments are correctly setting up and capturing charges for these high-cost therapies.

During this 60-minute webinar, expert speaker John D. Settlemyer, MBA, MHA, CPC, CHRI, will explain the coding and billing rules for new technology in inpatient and outpatient settings. Settlemyer will share tips for setting up charges for codes and improving documentation, as well as correctly reporting billing information on claims.
