Significant changes are coming in 2021.  While we continue to grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic, several changes have affected the chiropractic practice.  Doctor and staff training, procedures, and vital documentation need to be updated to ensure Federal, State, and local laws and regulations.  The first half of each day will cover Medicare, HIPAA, and the ICD-10 changes for 2021.  The second half of each day will provide step-by-step methods for the coding and the new documentation requirements for the 2021 Evaluation and Management (E/M) guidelines. These changes will affect all practice types, including cash practice.  Learn the new coding methods and the key elements that must be documented to avoid audit and non-payment.   Gain knowledge from a seasoned certified compliance officer, certified practice manager, and practitioner for over 34 years. 

Learning objectives:

  • Learn the Medicare requirements and proper use of the ABN form
  • Identify policies and procedures for HIPAA training and compliance
  • Determine the proper use of ICD-10 diagnosis codes
  • Learn the differences between the previous E/M guidelines and the new guidelines
  • Learn the new E/M coding system and the key elements that must be documented to avoid audit and non-payment.
  • Understand medical decision making and time
