    Knowing Your Practice

    There are those sensitive topics that many practices would prefer to stick their heads in the sand and pretend they don’t exist, but we all know that we should review these - and often. During this session, we will review these common topics and considerations for practices of all sizes.

    • Incident-to and Split-shared services
    • 25 Modifier usage
    • Transitional Care Management
    • Chronic Care Management
    • Internal consults
    • Pre-operative clearance
    • Many other topics and Q&A

    • How compliance fits with coding and auditing
    • Building a compliance plan
