Course Overview

The 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.

  • 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
