Join ASIPP for this informative webinar that will not only review the coding and regulatory changes for pain management practices in 2017, but take next steps to evaluate the impact these modifications have had on your billing, documentation and reimbursement.   For instance, if you haven’t changed the way you document moderate sedation, you could be putting your practice at risk.

There are major alterations in documentation requirements that, if done correctly, may influence your work flow and the time to record these services. 

Verify that the necessary notations have been included in your epidural procedure notes to support the codes you are reporting.  Urine drug testing continues to rank high on all payers’ audit plans so it is crucial that all EMR templates and billing tools have been updated appropriately to meet medical necessity requirements for this controversial controlled substance management tool.
