With declining Medicare reimbursements affecting medical practices around the country, there is finally reason to be optimistic in 2015! The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) are now paying for chronic care management: non-face-to-face time spent managing patients with chronic illnesses. The key to increasing your reimbursements in 2015 is code 99490, and we'd like to tell you how to use it! Join reimbursement expert Elizabeth Woodcock for an educational webinar, where you will learn the ins and outs of this new code, and how to use it effectively to increase collections in your organization.
Topics will include:
• Requirements for using the code
• Who can bill the code
• Patients who are candidates for the code
• Payment for the code
• Methods to track time for chronic care management
This webinar is designed to educate and inform your staff about best practices using this new billing code, the first of its kind.
