2013 Outpatient Wound Care Coding
Ensure Compliance From Registration to Billing
Presented on: March 5, 2013, 1:00 pm–2:30 pm Eastern
Sponsored by: Briefings on APCs
Presented by: Gloria Miller, CPC, CPMA
Correct wound care billing and coding begins at the registration desk and flows through the entire facility—clinical, coding, and billing. Incomplete documentation or an incorrect modifier can cost the facility a large amount of revenue.
Join experienced coding professional Gloria Miller for a 90-minute webcast. Our expert speaker will help you evaluate your process with step-by-step strategies and tips to improve documentation, coding accuracy, and compliance.
At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:
- Explain supervision requirements for wound care services
