Nothing ever stays the same in Medicare! Two months ago, CMS and NGS changed the documentation rules and regulations for Medicare. Then, the ABN form changed in June and again just recently for non-par doctors. Compliance with the security rule of HIPAA has never been more important, as doctor's offices become an increasing target of cybersecurity threats. These significant changes will impact the chiropractic office and the way you practice!
In this unique class, stay on top of all this information and more. Learn how the NEW fee schedule has changed, MIPS, documentation guidelines, CPT codes for 2018 and how to implement the 2018 ICD-10 Guidelines.
Dr. Mario Fucinari, is uniquely qualified as one of the few instructors still in full-time practice! Dr. Fucinari is a member of the Carrier Advisory Committee for Medicare, a Certified Professional Compliance Officer (CPCO through AAPC), and a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician (CCSP®). He is a Diplomate of the Academy of Integrative Pain Management (APMP). In his back-to-the-basics approach, Mario whittles a difficult subject to an understandable and interesting comprehension of the requirements. This class is designed for everybody; doctors, staff and billers will gain useful information!
