      Course Overview

      Reimbursement for provider-based departments (PBD) and clinics has been declining, with off-campus payment changes and significant encounter-based packaging initiatives by CMS. Hospitals need to understand both the outpatient prospective payment system as well as the new PBD site-specific physician fee schedule payment to effectively assess the impact of these initiatives on PBDs and patients. With more hospitals moving services off-campus due to the value of hospital space or for patient convenience, reimbursement and compliance now become even more complex.

      The Medicare Boot Camp—Provider-Based Departments Version provides education on attestations, on- and off-campus determinations, enrollment, billing, and reimbursement. This Boot Camp will provide brand new insight for understanding hospital outpatient department billing and reimbursement in an ever-changing regulatory landscape.

      This boot camp will break down billing, coding, compliance, coverage, qualification, and other issues. It will help attendees gauge the financial impact of changes to off-campus PBDs, understand the effects of the recent increased packaging of services for all PBDs, and know how to handle other recent changes, such as modifiers -PO and -PN and modifier JG.



      You will leave this program knowing how to:

      Ensure PBDs meet regulatory requirements

      Properly apply Modifiers -PO, -PN, -25, and -JG

      Apply supervision requirements to ensure compliant, covered hospital outpatient services

      Find and apply National and Local Coverage Determinations

      Research Medicare coverage, coding, and billing issues

      Accurately calculate reimbursement for on- and off-campus PBDs under both the OPPS and PBD site-specific MPFS rate

      Determine when ancillary services such as drugs and testing are paid separately
