online event Fremont, California United States
Event Listing

Overview: This course covers a wide range of CPT coding concepts with numerous interesting and information examples from the instructor's over 15 years of experience and training over 1,000 certified coders. In addition, the presenter has practical knowledge in coding and billing teaching hundreds of live seminars worldwide. It starts with the basics such manual symbols, place of service codes and the organization of the CPT manual. It then covers the highlights for every section of the CPT manual. Key areas include E & M, surgical guidelines, OB/GYN rules, modifiers and the CPT appendices.

The goal here is to impart to billers, management and Providers the complexity and scope of the CPT manual using actual examples from each section. In addition, this course is a great introduction and review for medical coders. It does not require any prior knowledge of coding or billing. The take-away here is a solid foundation of CPT coding concepts with specific examples and how they relate to the bigger picture of compliance, accuracy and reimbursement.

Why should you attend: This course is the result of over 15 years of teaching coding and billing to Providers, coders, billers and management. It covers all the basic concepts of CPT coding with just enough detail to make it meaningful and memorable. It is especially useful for non-coders or beginning coders.

How to Develop an Effective Compliance Program
10/30/2014 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
online training Fremont, California United States
Event Listing

Overview: Fraud, waste and abuse are spiraling out of control in the United States. The federal government is the biggest target for fraudsters because it spends hundreds of billions of dollars subsidizing federal programs. Medicare, the federal health insurance program for millions of Americans who are over age 65, disabled or have end stage renal disease, is the largest federal health care program. Because of rising health care costs and the proliferation of fraud, waste and abuse in the health care industry, the government continues to pass legislation and enforcement activities directed at the health care industry.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' (HHS) and the Office of Inspector General (OIG) believe that an effective compliance program can significantly reduce fraud, waste and abuse. In addition, prosecutors may not pursue a criminal action against organizations that have an effective compliance program. Consequently, implementing an effective compliance program could minimize the consequences resulting from a violation of the law. In fact, the U.S. Sentencing Commission Guidelines specifically mandate lesser criminal sanctions for companies that have effective compliance. Generally, the OIG will look to the effectiveness of the compliance program as a factor when determining the level of sanctions, penalties, and/or exclusions to be imposed on the provider.

In addition to reducing the risk of criminal and civil liabilities and sanctions, compliance programs offer many other benefits. Primarily, a compliance program fulfills the provider's legal duty to ensure that it is not submitting false or inaccurate claims to government and private payors. Equally important, a compliance program helps a provider fulfill its care-giving mission to residents and patients and the community. It improves quality of care and operations because it assists the provider to identify weaknesses and to improve upon internal systems and business office management. Furthermore, an effective compliance plan and program concretely demonstrates to employees and the community at large the provider's strong commitment that it is honest and ethical in its corporate conduct. In addition, it helps provide a more accurate view of employee and contractor behavior relating to fraud and abuse.

A compliance program reduces the likelihood of wrongdoing, aids in the early detection of issues, and establishes a structure for internal reporting and investigation. In addition, it helps prevent criminal activity and illustrates a lack of intent to perform unlawful acts; thus, in cases where the government uncovers fraud, it shows that reasonable efforts have been made by management to prevent and detect any misconduct that occurs within the entity. By initiating immediate and appropriate corrective action; and through early detection and reporting, you can minimize the loss to the government from false claims, and thereby reduce your exposure to civil damages and penalties, criminal sanctions, and administrative remedies, such as program exclusion.

Why should you attend: SNFs face complex challenges that require new and coordinated approaches by the quality, compliance and risk management teams. A survey finding of immediate jeopardy could be followed by a wrongful death lawsuit, attorney general investigation, professional licensure actions, 'qui tam' civil lawsuit or criminal enforcement action. SNF leadership won't want to miss this insightful presentation that will review the key strategies and tactics necessary to evaluate and update current program efforts to maximize outcomes, while minimizing the typical program 'gaps' that leave SNFs vulnerable to the 'perfect storm' that churns up complex issues tied to quality, compliance and risk management.

10/7/2014 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
online event Fremont, California United States
Event Listing

Overview: This webinar introduces participants to undeniable, self-evidence and self-validating principles that not only answer these questions, but open vast new abilities and possibilities for therapy, healing, transformation and personal evolution.

Do you wish the therapy process was more naturally insightful, positive and uplifting for your clients (and you)?

Do you wish your clients would leave your sessions smiling and grateful and looking forward to returning and referring others?

Do you get stuck with clients or come to "therapy plateaus"?

Do you experience "compassion fatigue" or outright burnout?

Do you want your good work to go deeper and bring out the client's innate health, wisdom and wellbeing?

Do you want insight into what is behind and empowering psychological functioning, and thereby leverage your knowledge and therapeutic skill?

Do you want to work in a stress-resilient feeling of "flow" while simultaneously increasing effectiveness and client responsiveness?

To facilitate big therapeutic changes therapists need to see the big picture of human experience and performance.

Where does human experience originate? The environment? The brain? Past trauma?

How does human experience become what it does?

How does human experience change?

How does human experience change for the better?

What is the relationship between human experience and performance?

The underlying principles of all human psychological functioning, and therefore all human behavior and experience, have now been identified. Insight into these principles uncovers a new depth of "functional wisdom and wellbeing" for clients and new levels of understanding and skill for therapists.

Therefore, this webinar presents a novel and accurate "big picture" on all human experience, thereby improving therapist ability to navigate and empower the therapy process.

Why should you attend:

Gain insights that greatly simplify and empower your understanding of psycho-emotional pathology, health and therapeutic effectiveness
