Medical Coding and Billing Review

coding and billingJoin MOROF as we welcome Trish Stone from the UCF REC as she explains how billing errors can reduce a practice’s revenue by up to 30%, which can translate into as much as $50,000 in lost revenue per provider. Whether it’s inaccurate or inefficient billing, errors can affect your practice’s bottom line. A billing audit provides a review of billing standards and helps correct billing oversights.

This presentation explains how to...

• IMPROVE YOUR EARNINGS – identify lost revenue
• MEET BILLING STANDARDS – ensure appropriate payment and compliance
• CHECK INTERNAL PROCESSES – assess the accuracy of documentation
• CHECK FOR ERRORS – verify coding and billing support
• PROVIDE PEACE OF MIND – protect your practice from legal and financial risk
