Cardiac procedures yield high rates of reimbursement. They’re also a target for auditing because that’s where the money is– big money! But to get all the reimbursement you deserve is tricky, challenging, and complex. That’s why RACmonitor is conducting this two-part series on steps your facility can take so you won’t leave money on the table–or have your reimbursement recouped.
Join Jill Knight as she reviews the current state of pacemaker coverage, and how to set up a compliant documentation and coding program to secure appropriate payment and defend against forthcoming RAC audits.
