Live Virtual Revenue Integrity and Chargemaster Boot Camp for Critical Access Hospitals

Course Overview

Charge capture’s importance is at an all-time high.  Let our expert instructors peel back the layers of chargemaster and revenue integrity.

The Live Virtual Revenue Integrity and Chargemaster Boot Camp – Critical Access Hospital Version provides education on chargemaster and revenue integrity concepts in a classroom format. The program will relate the chargemaster function to revenue cycle and revenue integrity functions, including cost reporting and key operational issues, such as coverage, clinical documentation, charge capture, and coding.

It will also provide context for chargemaster set-up and maintenance within revenue integrity with an objective to help avoid pre- and post- billing edits and payer denials.  This Boot Camp reviews chargemaster coding requirements for Critical Access Hospitals and excludes discussion of topics that are specific to coding for the outpatient prospective payment system.

You will leave this program knowing how to:

  • Provide formal, organized education and training for revenue integrity and chargemaster staff
  • Provide context for the intersection of the chargemaster with clinical/revenue departments, charge capture, coding, finance, and patient access and billing
  • Walk attendees through CMS regulatory requirements for pricing and charging patients, ** as well as key relationships between the chargemaster and provider cost reporting
  • Give detailed instructions for the majority of revenue codes for optimal chargemaster setup, maintenance, charge capture, and documentation issues for critical access hospitals
  • Review chargemaster issues for commercial/managed care versus CMS requirements for critical access hospitals**

See the HCPro difference for yourself!

Focus on the actual rules: Learn how to find and apply CMS rules and guidelines to ensure hospital services furnished to Medicare beneficiaries are billed accurately and appropriately.

Tools and skills to navigate Medicare rules: Our instructors provide valuable tools and resources that will help you prioritize and research Medicare questions long after the Boot Camp ends.

Case studies: Case studies ensure attendees understand the concepts and know how to apply them to real-world situations.

Small class size: A low participant-to-teacher ratio is guaranteed.

Highly rated, well-established program: Participants consistently give the course an overall rating of 4.75 or higher (on a 5.0 scale). We currently conduct more than 30 Medicare Boot Camp courses each year.
