NCCI Edits and MUEs: Here Today and Not Gone Tomorrow - On-Demand

Presented on: Thursday, January 20, 2022 

Presented by: Denise Williams, COC, CHRI

Medicare’s National Correct Coding Initiative (NCCI) edits and Medically Unlikely Edits (MUE) are a common pain point and a growing concern. As commercial payers increasingly adopt NCCI edits and MUEs, the complexity of edits and how they interact with each other and other payer requirements can quickly become overwhelming. A backlog of edits can throw a wrench into the revenue cycle, leading to delayed billing to resolve the edit or even delayed reimbursement if the edit is improperly bypassed and the claim is rejected or denied. Reworking and resubmitting claims creates even more administrative burden and cuts further into an organization’s bottom line.

During this 60-minute webinar, Denise Williams, COC, CHRI, will review 2022 updates to the NCCI narrative manual instructions, as well as specific edits organizations see on a regular basis. Williams will discuss strategies for managing edits, avoiding denials, and solving common edit challenges. The presentation will be followed by a live Q&A.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Explain NCCI edits and MUEs
  • Analyze the NCCI narrative manual changes and updates for 2022 and the effect on any coding processes
  • Describe some strategies for resolving edits on the front end to prevent delayed revenue
