Equip your team to combat declining reimbursements — and earn CRCEs!
During uncertain times, correct coding and strict regulatory compliance mean more than ever for the providers of respiratory therapy services. With declining payments — and an increased risk of audits — you need to ensure you’re capturing every legitimate dollar for the respiratory therapy services you provide. This starts with consistently accurate coding, fully supported by documentation, for RT, pulmonary function testing, polysomnography, and other services under the RT/PFT umbrella.
Using case examples and visual aids to reinforce key points, RT expert Robin Miller Zweifel will guide you through 2022 code changes, the latest coding guidelines and opportunities for improved charge capture.. She’ll also discuss 2022 payment changes and the impact on RT departments, as well as deliver best practices that can help reduce the threats to your revenues and compliance.
Besides gaining a wealth of actionable insights, you can earn 1.5 CRCEs from the American Association for Respiratory Care (click on CE tab above for details). This webcast is an excellent training opportunity for both audio and visual learners.
