Description Biography Continuing Education

Equip your team to combat declining reimbursements — and earn CRCEs!

During uncertain times, correct coding and proper compliance means more than ever for 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, practical instruction, and a break-down of common missed revenue opportunities, renowned RT expert Robin Miller Zweifel will guide you through code changes and the latest coding guidelines. She’ll also discuss payment changes and the impact on RT departments, plus 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.
